Default how do I put borders around columns that look like page border

So you've got one section above another? In that case I'm not sure how
you're using columns in the first place. Why not just use a three-row
bordered table (the middle row for the space between the sections)? I'm also
not sure what including the footer has to do with it since surely you don't
have footer text. You can reduce the footer margin to zero and reduce the
bottom margin accordingly.

I have tried that but it puts it in landscape view and I need it in
portrait.
I have tried in both office 2003 and office 2007 and same result.

Thank you thought

There is a way, but not with columns. Assuming you have Word 2000 or
above,
go to Page Setup | Margins: Multiple pages and choose "2 pages per
sheet."
This will give you two logical pages per physical sheet of paper, and
each
of them can be treated exactly like an ordinary page, including adding
a
page border.

I have a page that I want to have a border around each column that
looks
like
a page border because I want to fold the page in half.
I have tried using a paragraph border but it does not get very close
to
the
edge of the page and it also does not include my footer inside of
the
border.

Any one know how I can accomplish what I am hoping to do?
