I have a code to convert word document in PDF in VB 6.0 But when i try to convert it gives error invalid procedure call

What I have tried:

Dim objDoc As Object                                  
    Dim rngRange As Object                               
    Dim WordApp As Object                      
    Set objDoc = CreateObject("Word.Document")
    Set WordApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
 With WordApp
     Set objDoc = .Documents.Open(g_strPath & "\Documents\Report.doc")

        WordApp.ActiveDocument.ExportAsFixedFormat OutputFileName:= _
        App.Path & "\Documents\Report.pdf", ExportFormat:=wdExportFormatPDF, _
        OpenAfterExport:=True, OptimizeFor:=wdExportOptimizeForPrint, Range:= _
        wdExportAllDocument, From:=1, To:=1, Item:=wdExportDocumentContent, _
        IncludeDocProps:=True, KeepIRM:=True, CreateBookmarks:= _
        wdExportCreateNoBookmarks, DocStructureTags:=True, BitmapMissingFonts:= _
        True, UseISO19005_1:=False
        objDoc.PrintOut FileName = "C:\MyReport.pdf"
        Set objDoc = Nothing
        Set rngRange = Nothing
        .visible = True
end with

Where does the error occur?

When I call WordApp.ActiveDocument.ExportAsFixedFormat OutputFileName........
For this call i get error "object doesn't support this property or call"

Check the documentation to see which part is not valid. It may be that the ExportAsFixedFormat method does not exist, or one of the parameters is incorrect.

You're specifying both range and from / to parameters; but from / to are only relevant if the selected range is wdExportRange. At the end of the routine you're calling PrintOut with a filename parameter. You're not using a named parameter and, if you were, the parameter is named OutputFileName not FileName. The filename is only of any relevance if you set "PrintToFile" true, which you're not; so the final step just prints the document to the default printer. Now, if you have setup the default printer as PrintToPdf then that may be all you need to do, i.e. no need to attempt the previous export.
objDoc.PrintOut OutputFileName:="C:\myReport.pdf",PrintToFile:=True

I have used some bookmarks in my word document to show data. And I want to convert Whole word doc to PDF. Should I remove to/from parameters
DerekT-P 20-May-19 9:33am
You've explicitly specified you want to export the whole document. The MS documentation doesn't explicitly state it, but since To:= and From:= are only relevant when wdExportRange is used, any other time they must be ignored. For clarity if nothing else, I'd remove the to/from parameters. And you're not "converting" the document; you're exporting a copy in a different format (or logically "printing" the document). But anyway see Rick's solution below... was assuming you had this installed since you're referencing the wdExport.... constants, but maybe you'd just defined them yourself?

You have to install the microsoft office add on for export, see example 2 here:

Thanks for the example. It worked for me in VB6. I added a Call statement and here are the values I used...

Dim lngPageCount As Long
lngPageCount = 1
Call objDoc.ExportAsFixedFormat(strReportName & ".pdf", wdExportFormatPDF, False, _
wdExportOptimizeForPrint, wdExportAllDocument, 1, lngPageCount, _
wdExportDocumentContent, False, True, wdExportCreateNoBookmarks, True, _
True, False)
