Document always "spooling"

I have a Word document which I try to using vba.

I am at the stage where the item is not in the "PDFCreator application" queue but in the "PDFCreator printer" queue , with a status of "Spooling"

If a put a break code in and stop the application , it moves from Spooling and prints as expected. If I loop in code, it never manages to move from the spooling stage.

Any ideas?
