C 9/4/2006 9:41:01 PM
Sometime after i have been working on word 2003 for a long time, i go to edit
swomething that i wrote earlier, and if i hit the space bar i end up deleting
the word. Is there any way to stop this?

Press Insert once or double-click OVR on the status bar to toggle from
Overtype to Insert mode.

You're switching to Overtype mode, shown by the 'OVR' in the status bar.
Press the Insert button.
