In the Research task pane, in the box under search for, I need Encarta

Encyclopedia for my class that I'm taking. Why isn't it there?

    • At the bottom of the Research task pane, click the link for "Research

      options". In that dialog, make sure one of the Encarta versions is

      checked. Note that there are separate entries in the Reference Books

      and Research Sites groups; you should probably check both.

    • In a little bit of haste, I just posted a similar question in this group

      under "Missing Encarta services in research pane."

      In my case, Encarta items are not present under "Search options" so I cannot

      add them to the research pane from there (I am using a non-US version of

      Office 2003 and Win XP SP2).

      I'd very much appreciate if you could write me the URLs for these two

      services, Encarta Encyclopedia and Encarta Dictionary, so that I can add them

      manually. The URL for the service will be displayed (most probably ending in

      ..asmx) if you click on the respective Encarta item in "Search options" and

      then on "Properties." Thanks!

    • The entire set of services offered with Office is at

      http://office.microsoft.com/Research/query.asmx. You should get a list of

      services, with a checkbox next to each one to select which ones to

      configure.

    • Thanks for the reply but no luck here. The list that comes up contains no

      Encarta items. I have also read somewhere that this may be due to non-US

      regional settings (in other words, it seems that Encarta is only offered as a

      search service in the US market).

      The same applies to some other services as well. However, I have been able

      to add some service providers that were not offered in the list in my

      language version of Office. The provider Thomson Gale, for example, can be

      added manually by typing in the URL

      http://msqry.gale.com/galequery/query.asmx.

      I would assume that the Encarta search service (both Encyclopedia and

      Dictionary) has such an URL that can be added, even if Encarta is not

      automatically listed in "Search options." Any suggestions?

    • I would not generally assume that there must be such a URL. I suggest

      you contact the local Microsoft office nearest to you (probably

      through http://support.microsoft.com/common/international.aspx) and

      ask them.
