Microsoft office 2003 not recognising keyboard

  44grw 12:20 01 Feb 2007

Suddenly without warning my keyboard does not work in Word, Excel or Publisher. I can open existing documents but am unable to edit them in all three applications. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Office but to no avail.

Keyboard works everywhere else as proved by typing this query.

Any ideas?

not sure if this will help but found this.
it is an answer to a question simular to yours on an other forum.

: Add/Remove Office Keyboard Software and Re-Install
A: After you have installed the Office Keyboard software, the Office Keyboard Icon will display on system tray. If you want to re-install the software for any reason, you must delete the Office Keyboard software drivers from your system. Right-click the mouse button on the Office Keyboard Icon and choose EXIT. Next, open the Control panel from the Start menu and then select (Add/Remove) to delete the Office Keyboard software. This will remove the drivers from your system. Now you must restart your system and re-install the software drivers.
Note: You must use this procedure if you want to upgrade your Office Keyboard functions or the software does not work properly.

If it is Office 2000 or later (which version is it?) try Detect and Repair on the Help menu.

Does the virtual keyboard work - Start, All Programs > Accessories > Accessibility > On-screen Keyboard
