    Snaking Columns?? (Word 2K)

    I have turned a list of names from Access into a Word doc that I need to be in 2 columns. I've selected the whole document (just a long vertical list of names) and then clicked on the columns button, selected 2 columns and it just keeps staying in one continuous list???? HELP!

    Hi Hans,

    There were 31 pages in the document. Whilst awaiting your reply I played around with it some more, and Voila! It was the manual page breaks that were messing it up. I globally removed them and now all is well!

    Re: Snaking Columns?? (Word 2K)

    Hi Gabi...just for clarification, is the list like First_Name, Last_Name ? Are you then trying to get this last into two columns with theFirst_Name in one column and the Last_Name in the second columns, or vice-versa? If this is what you are trying to do then you need some way of telling Word how to distinguish what you want in column one from what you want in column two. Post back and let me know. <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20>

    Guess you solved it before I could get this one posted. GRRRREAT!!!

    Cheers,
