Changing columns on same page

    I am typing a flyer and am using 2 columns in one area of the first page but
    when I want to switch back to one column for the balance of the page it won't
    let me do it. Is there a secret to this? If click the column button and then
    1 column it changes the formatting entirely.
    Thanks

    Insert a section break and then change columns. Without knowing what
    version of Word you are using (assuming Word) can't help more.

    Yes, this helps. I saw the page break but not the continuous one. Thank You.
