you don't understand it well enough.

Formatting a Section of your Document with Columns
 
Q: Every time I try to set up columns in Microsoft Word, the whole document gets reformatted with the columns. How can I tell Word to only set up columns on a specific page of my document without the whole thing going crazy? >Les, Amherst NY
 
A: The solution, Les, is to simply highlight (select with the mouse or keyboard) the section of your document that you want to be in columns. Here's my trick: take your mouse and click at the very beginning of the section you want to be in columns. Now, hold down the SHIFT key and click at the very end of the section. That should select (highlight) all of the text and everything in between. Now, click on the Format Columns button on your toolbar, or click on Format > Columns, and make sure the "Apply To" option says, "Selected Text." You should be good to go! You can learn all about formatting documents using Columns in our Microsoft Word 103 course.
