'Declare object variables.
Dim WdApp As Object, wddoc As Object
'Open Word
Set WdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
'Open the Word document to be printed.
Set wddoc = WdApp.Documents.Open(Filename:="C:\Your\File\Path\YourWordDoc.docx")
'Print the entire Worddocument.
'Give the print job 5 seconds to complete before closing Word.
Application.Wait Now + TimeSerial(0, 0, 5)
'Close the Word document, no need to save changes.
wddoc.Close savechanges:=False
'Quit the Word application.
'Set the Object variables to Nothing to release system memory.
