What kind of entry? If it is an index entry, delete the corresponding XE field inserted by Word. To see XE fields as well as other hidden fields, display nonprinting marks; you can click the ¶ button on the Home tab. When you are done, update the index.

If these are index entries  the following macro should do the job

http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm   

Sub Macro1()
Dim oFld As Field
Dim strFldText
Dim strAsk As String
Dim bHidden As Boolean
    With ActiveWindow.View
        bHidden = .ShowHiddenText
        .ShowHiddenText = True
    End With
    For Each oFld In ActiveDocument.Range.Fields
        If oFld.Type = wdFieldIndexEntry Then
            oFld.Select
            strFldText = Replace(oFld.Code, "XE ", "")
            strAsk = MsgBox("Delete " & strFldText, vbYesNoCancel)
            If strAsk = vbYes Then
                oFld.Delete
            ElseIf strAsk = vbCancel Then
                GoTo Finish
            End If
        End If
    Next oFld
Finish:
    With ActiveWindow.View
        .ShowHiddenText = bHidden
    End With
End Sub

If Table of Contents entry fields then see http://www.gmayor.com/table_of_contents_addin.html
