Can someone please tell me how to create a WORD2003 document with two columns, with text and tables in each colum? Thanks.

Try clicking the toolbar icon that looks like two sets of parallel lines. From this, you can drag across columns to select how many columns you want.
Or, in the menu, select Format > Columns > and select the number of columns you want.

You then type, create tables, etc. in each column just as you would normally in an ordinary document.

Vino Rosso: Thanks for your response. When I click Format\Coluns and select three columns I see a preview of a 3 column page OK. But how do I navigate between columns? I can't get out of column1. What am I missing?

Thanks for your hand-holding.

Hi

When you type things in column 1, Word will continue to fill column 1 until it is full. The cursor will then move to column 2. Once column 2 is full, it'll move to column 3.

If you are part way down column 1 and want to move to column 2 before column 1 is full, click Insert > Break > Column Break > OK. The cursor will move to the next column.
