I tried:
myDOc.Words.Last.Bold = True

But it does not do anything.  Why Not?????

How many carriage returns or page breaks do you have after your "last" word?

Trying EDDYKT's script above, I found that it worked right when I had a return after my last word.  When I deleted that return the next-to-last word was what was bolded.  

I find that myDoc.Words.Last evaluates to a return.  What's working for me is:
ThisDocument.Words.Item(ThisDocument.Words.Count - 1).Bold = True
   
(Besides EDDYKT's code).
