Question Cant Backspace In Word

I cant backspace more than 1 character at a time in Word 2000. I can in any other program (ex: Excel and IE). It just started a few days ago and it is driving me nuts!!

Thanks

as dishdog said try reinstalling word. I mean sometimes programs can be like that. Once with adobe photoshop i couldnt use the text tool anymore so i had to reinstall. and this is a microsoft program so ur even more unlucky. if you reinstall and it still doesnt work use wordpad or download open office free from www.openoffice.org
