Default How do I set columns of unequal length in Word 2003

Word seems to balance the length of 2 columns so that they are of equal
length. I wish to make the columns unequal. Is there a way of doing this?
If so please tell me.

Click at the point where you want the first column to end, and click on
Insert | Break | Column break | OK.

Or use the Compatibility Option (Tools | Options | Compatibility) "Don't
balance columns for Continuous section starts."
