 disable Insert key

Can anyone think of a way, using an autoexec macro, to
disable the INSERT key every time Word starts up?

Thanks for any help.

Hi, Mark,

No macro is needed. Just go to Tools/Customize and click the Keyboard button. Select the category
All Commands, select the Overtype command, and remove the Insert key from the list of current keys.
Check that "Save changes in" is set to normal.dot, and click OK. If you ever want it back, reverse
this operation.
