Word 2003 deletion problem

  Kernel 16:14 13 Nov 2006

If I try to make an amendment on a Word 2003 document I can delete, say, a letter, but then when I insert a new letter as a replacement it also deletes the next letter along. This means that if a do make an amendment I have to retype the whole thing from where the amendment took place. How can I prevent this?

It sounds like you are in Overtype mode. Press the Insert key to turn this off. Th OVR at the bottom of the window should turn off as well.

As vog says:
Or tools>options>edit and unclick overtype mode.
