Although I thought it would be an easy thing to do I'm finding it difficult to get much info or help on this. The few scripts and instructions I have discovered on the web don't seem to work. I tried to create one with a get file and then convert word docx. It creates the pdfs but they are corrupted and can't be opened.
Any ideas anyone?

Drag and drop the files on the application.
To make it work with double-clicking it you need to add at least one more action and put it in front, like
Ask for Finder Items or Get selected Finder Items and more.

To show you the possibilities of Automator.
Choose template Service
check: Service receives selected files and folders in Finder.app
Set the actions:
• Get Folder content
• Run AppleScript (and paste the script there)
Save the workflow.
Now select the .doc/docx files in Finder OR the folder containing these files.
Right-click the files/folder and look for the service in the contextual menu.
Choose (run) the service
