If they're embedded in two-cell tables, you can select the column with the term to copy it. If they're set off with a tab character and that's the only tab character in those types of paragraphs, you can convert those paragraphs to a two-column table and the term will be in one column and the definition will be in the other column.

Best Regards,

Mike

Heya Jim,

I'm hoping there's at least some consistency between how the terms are
formatted, either wrapped by specific "characters" (including punctuation)
or assigned specific styles.

Then you can write a macro that isolated all the find items into a new
document, table, whatever. You could even sort them, separate Spanish and
English, and output them into an Excel file directly.

I guess the key is what would work best in the situation you have,

150 page document. Bilingual definitions [Spanish and English].

The terms are in all caps and the definitions are styled with regular
sentence capitalization.

What I want to do:

Pull out only the capitalized words so that I'll have a nice list of the
1400 some terms. Then I'd like to do things with that list [separate out
the Spanish 700 from the English 700, alphabetize them, put in
Access/Excel, etc].

Advice?
