You cannot print the main dictionary from Microsoft Word for Windows version 1.x or 2.0. The contents of the dictionary file are in a binary format and therefore cannot be printed.
You can print the user dictionary using the following procedure:
From the File menu, choose Open.
If you have Word for Windows 1.0, 1.1, or 1.1a, select the WINWORD directory, type “STDUSER.DIC” (without the quotation marks), and press ENTER to begin opening the user dictionary.
If you have Word for Windows 2.0, select the WINDOWS directory, type “CUSTOM.DIC” (without the quotation marks), and press ENTER to begin opening the user dictionary.
For a conversion filter, choose Text.
Choose the OK button to complete opening the file.
This procedure opens the user dictionary as a text file. You can print this file as a normal file.
