Stupid Backspace Problem!

Word is behaving strangely

Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, but hopefully someone out there will shed some light for me.

Not too long ago I was putting together a document in MS word and my backspace button stopped working when highlighting sections to delete. I'm not blaming Mr backspace completely though, because when I highlight a sentence or set of text and try to write something in its place, it doesn't work either. The text simply appears next to the old.

I realise this might be some ridiculously small error I've missed, but please, anyone got any clue whats going on?

Sorry this is a bit like a Computers For Idiots posting.

Make sure the Insert key on the keyboard is working the way you want to.
