You can insert a column break using Ctrl+Shift+Enter, but make sure that
newspaper-style columns are what you really want; possibly you need a table
instead. See http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting/UsingColumns.htm

If you're referring to the keyboard shortcut, you can find a list of all of
them in the Help topic "Keyboard shortcuts."

Actually the above question has not been answered. What has been answered is
now to create column breaks. I have two columns and would like to move from
one column to another even if there is no text. I don't want to use table
with lines, I just want to move about.

Thank you

Ctrl+Shift+Enter inserts a column break, yes.

Usually you let Word flow the text into the next column, though (or make use
of a table).

I just found it on-line. At the end of the text in your left column, press
Control+Shift+Enter.

You cannot move between newspaper columns unless they contain text. If
they
do contain text, you can move the insertion point for example by clicking
in
the text, or by using the same commands as in single-column text (see the
article at
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/wo...CH060831551033
"Keyboard shortcuts for Word").

From your description, it does seem as if a table would be the best
choice.
Note that you can remove the table border.

Keep typing until you've filled up the first column.

However, it's more likely that what you want is a two-column table
(with no borders); then you can put items side by side in the two
columns.
