The "Overtype Mode" must be disable or else whenever you try to insert new text, it overwrites the existing text. So if it is checked, simply un-check it.

I have Microsoft
Word 2003 (I know, I'm one of those old-school girls), and it seems I'm in
a bit of a pickle with one of the parameters. The thing that's bothering me a
little bit is that whenever I type something in a document, Microsoft Word seems
to have this tendency to want to delete what's already there and replace it with
what I just typed. When I go into the Options dialog box, there's a checkbox
that says "Overtype Mode", and another that says, "Replace Text As You Type",
and another that says "Typing Replaces Selection". All of these seem to be
checked without my knowledge. Does this happen automatically? Is there a way to
prevent this from happening? It's driving me
