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

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?

Thumbs up Answer: how do I put borders around columns that look like page borders?

Sure, I can help you with that! Here's how you can put borders around columns that look like page borders in Microsoft Word:
  1. First, select the text that you want to put the border around. If you want to put the border around the entire page, press Ctrl+A to select all the text.
  2. Next, go to the "Page Layout" tab in the ribbon at the top of the screen.
  3. Click on the "Page Borders" button in the "Page Background" section.
  4. In the "Borders and Shading" dialog box that appears, select the "Box" option under "Setting."
  5. Under "Preview," you should see a preview of what the border will look like. If you don't see the preview, make sure the "Preview" checkbox is checked.
  6. Under "Apply to," select "Text" if you only want the border around the text, or "Whole document" if you want the border around the entire page.
  7. Under "Width," select the width of the border that you want. You can also select the color and style of the border under "Color" and "Style."
  8. Under "Options," make sure that the "Measure from" dropdown is set to "Edge of page."
  9. Finally, click "OK" to apply the border.

Your text or page should now have a border around it that looks like a page border. If you want to adjust the position of the border, you can do so by adjusting the margins of the page.

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 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

You get two portrait sections on a landscape page or two landscape sections
on a portrait page.

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.

Default borders around columns

Just stumbled across this old query whilst trying to find how to get two A5 sheets with a border on each onto one page. However, now discovered the quickest route is simply to go into Page Layout - select A5 size with portrait orientation - put in your required width of border - set up margins as required ... and now the lateral thinking bit: Keep pressing Enter key until you've scrolled down to a 2nd page and then go into Print Options and select "2 pages per sheet" - and lo and behold you get two A5 sheets with borders on one page. Type in whatever you need and print off and save as required.

Default borders around columns

This is a little jumbled. The easiest way to do this is to retain the A4
paper size but select "2 pages per sheet" on the Margins tab of Page Setup
(not in the Print dialog), then select Landscape orientation. This will give
you two A5 pages on an A4 sheet. You can then use Format | Borders and
Shading | Page Borders to add a border to each page.

It is also not necessary to add empty paragraphs (by pressing the Enter key)
to get a second page; pressing Ctrl+Enter will insert a page break. The page
border will automatically be repeated on each page. All of this is detailed
in the thread below.
