I have an application I would like to run as a remote app on users machines.

In some parts of the application, it performs a mail merge with Word.

What will happen if it is coverted to a Remote App under Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Services?

Will it "call" for the local Word on the users machine, or will it "call" for the WOrd installed on the Terminal server? Are there any complications I need to be aware of? As it is over a VPN, if it calls for the local version I imagine that things will be slowed down quite  a bit!

It sounds like you have the Remote Apps published to the user desktop.  If the application is being access through the TS, it will want to access Word on the terminal server.  Think of it this way, if you remote desktop into a server, open an application that calls for Notepad, the program is looking for the notepad application on the server.
