Word lets you choose any of the fonts installed on your computer. Windows doesn't come with the Helvetica font. To conifrm this, go to the Control Panel and look at the fonts installed on your computer. Helvetica won't be there. You can either use Arial (very close to Helvetica), or purchase the Helvetica font online and install it.

Ok, I found out that there are many different fonts that are very similar to Helvetica, and the real Helvetica only can be purchased.
