Try the Adobe PostScript Printer Driver:

  http://www.adobe.com/

You'll need a PostScript Printer Description file -- one called default.ppd is usually included with the driver. When you setup the driver connect it to FILE: (not LPT1:) so when 'printing' to it you will automatically get a file selection box. To create epsf files instead of the deafult PostScript format you'll only have to change an option.

Another method would include converting the .doc file to Adobe's Acrobat PDF format (requires Adobe Acrobat 3/4.0); after its in .PDF format, Adobe's Illustrator vector-artwork package will open native PDF files and save them out in a variety of formats, including EPSF.

Good luck

Fine. An other tip: get a copy of the free programs Ghostscript/GSView (make sure it's version 6.0 or higher) and you can produce PDF out of anything you can 'print'.

The Ghostscript home page is at:

Ghostscript is a Postscript rasterizer (can print, produce, TIFF, BMP, PDF, ...)

GSView is a user friendly front-end for Ghostscript under Windows.
