[python-win32] Generating Postscript from Word

I was reading the code snippets in Hammond & Robertson
and have figured that

from win32com.client import Dispatch
myWord = Dispatch('Word.Application')
myWord.Visible = 1

gives me hard-copy on my currently selected printer.

However, I'd like to generate Postscript silently from Word. Doing

myWord.ActivePrinter = 'Apple LaserWriter 16/600 PS'

selects the right driver but I how do I pass a filename
for the output so as to avoid the dialogue box that
pops up?
