Microsoft Word Backspace

Probably a simple problem to fix, but... Am just in the middle of typing a Word (2003) document and when I highlight the text and press the backspace button to delete it the curser just moves to the start of the highlighted text - it doesn't delete the text. Pressing delete works fine. Using backspace elsewhere (here for example) works fine too. Any suggestions??

Thanks in advance.

I'm on Word 2000 - but it may be the same or similar...

Word > Tools > Options > Edit, put a tick in 'Typing replaces selection' & press OK. G

Just checked again, after system restart and works fine. Thanks anyway.
