Jim,
Try this:
CTRL+H
Find what: ([A-Z]@) ([A-Z][a-z]@>)
Replace with: \1^t\2
Replace All
Now you have the tab character between Term and Definition and can convert text to table, which you can manipulate in Excel or something like.
This assumes that the first character in the definition is upper case. If not, remove the second [A-Z].

Thanks to all. There is only the all caps for terms; no tabs, no punctuation and no table formatting. Jim Jones STC, ATA
