    There may be a shorter way but this works: insert a section break before the part of the page in which you want the columns. Select the text, click columns, two or however many. Insert another section break and revert to single column.

    Actually, if you first select the text that you want to format in columns, you can either click the columns button on the formatting toolbar or go to Format/Columns.../select the number & other attributes that you want in the dialog box & clikc OK. Word will put a continuous section break above & below your selected text.
    Cheers,

    Using section breaks will work - or just highlight the area you want in columns and click the columns tool and it will insert the section breaks for you.

    An easier approach might be using a 2-column table with multiple rows. On the row you want in one column, merge the cells. If you're not comfortable / experienced in working with tables, stick to columns.
