Why do you want to do this? Give us a clue what you are trying to do and maybe we can suggest something.

Encarta contains a dictionary that can be displayed in a column down the left side of the screen when using the program. Complete A-Z with a scroll bar. You click on any given word for the meaning.

It may be possible to copy/paste all the words into one column of something like Excel then the meanings in a different column. Not sure if it can be done though so don't buy the application just to try, see if you can have a go on a friends PC that has Encarta loaded.
