Buy a copy of Adobe Distiller or Acrobat--both (AFAIK) install a special printer driver which, if you print a document to it, will output a PDF. Just print to that printer from Word--no problem!

Incidentally, if you're really asking "How do I produce PDF files for free?", I don't think you can.

The last time I checked, ActiveX did not work on Macintosh.

Perhaps you would do well to EXPLAIN your situation in greater detail.  What're you are trying to do is VERY CONFUSING at this point.
