You need to have a PDF Converter installed.

In Word 2003 and before:

If you have Adobe PDF installed, you can print to the PDF Printer
If you need a freeware version, try PrimoPDF, and Print to the Primo PDF Printer
NOTE: There are others

This is easier to handle in Word 2007:

In Word 2007 install the free 2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=F1FC413C-6D89-4F15-991B-63B07BA5F2E5&displaylang=en)

    ActiveDocument.ExportAsFixedFormat OutputFileName:= _
        "FILENAME.pdf", ExportFormat:= _
        wdExportFormatPDF, OpenAfterExport:=False, OptimizeFor:= _
        wdExportOptimizeForPrint, Range:=wdExportAllDocument, From:=1, To:=1, _
        Item:=wdExportDocumentContent, IncludeDocProps:=False, KeepIRM:=True, _
        CreateBookmarks:=wdExportCreateNoBookmarks, DocStructureTags:=True, _
        BitmapMissingFonts:=True, UseISO19005_1:=False
