Inserting a Border Around a Page
Note that you can also adjust the length of a column by inserting a column break
using the Breaks button in the Page Setup group on the Page Layout tab. A column break
moves all the text and graphics following it to the next column. Column breaks are

columns on the last page won’t work. Instead, you can use a section break to distribute
an equal amount of text over all the columns on the page.
