    Sorry for the retarded question. If I have a document set up in three columns. How do I get a different background color for each column?

    Thanks,
    Jack

    Simply highlight the text from one of the columns and then select the background color of choice from the Home - Font section of the command ribbon ... then do the same for the other columns.

    I tried this in Word 2003: First, highlight the column you want to color. Then go to Format, there find the Background menu located under that heading. In the Background menu you'll see a pallet of colors. Click the color you'd like your column to be. I suggest you create a second version of the document you're formatting and run a test on that one.

    Good luck.
