Default How do I move from one column to the next in a two-column document

Hi,

I made two columns in my word 2003 document. I wanted to know how I go about
jumping from one column to the next? Normally, you have to type all the way
to the end of one column in order to reach the next column. I don't want to
do that. I just want to type a few words at the top of one column and move to
the next column over to type a few more words.

I remember someone telling me that there's a keyboard shortcut to do this.
Can anyone help?

Thank you very much.

If I knew that I had to do what you're asking about, I would have use a two
column table. You could just hit the tab key.

You can press Ctrl+Shift+Enter to insert a column break. Or use a two-column
table instead?

Default How do I move from one column to the next in a two-column docu

I inserted a column break and then was able to use ALT + down arrow and up
arrow to switch between the two. I thought there'd be an easier way of just
using some keyboard shortcuts to switch from one column to the next. I wonder
if this was implemented in 2007?

So, if this is the only way for now, then I guess my question has been
answered.

As both fellow correspondents have told you - use a two column table!
