If you want the document kept as a Word document then do not print it. DocuWare Printer is a PDF printer and all documents processed by it will result in PDF's. No printer can possibly give you a document in the format it was created in.
You can simply drag & drop the word document in to a tray, use DocuWare Windows Explorer client, or DocuWare Import. Those methods will preserve your document type.
