Would that be Word-for-Windows? If so, then select a postscript printer,
and instead of printing to a real printer, print to a postscript file.
You can then import that file to any program which can read poscript files.
If it's Word-for-DOS then it gets a little more complicated:
If your graphics package is capable of reading PCL language, then print to
an HP Lazerjet printer but direct to file. If worse comes to worse, and
all you need is a raster file (.tif or .pcx format) then you can get any
print-capture program available (such as DOS fax grabbers).
