TextColumns Object (Word)
Published: July 16, 2012
A collection of TextColumn objects that represent all the columns of text in a document or a section of a document.
Use the TextColumns property to return the TextColumns collection. The following example formats the columns in the first section in the active document to be evenly spaced, with a line between the columns.
With ActiveDocument.Sections(1).PageSetup.TextColumns .EvenlySpaced = True .LineBetween = True End With
Use the Add method to add a column to the collection of columns. By default, there is one text column in the TextColumns collection. The following example adds a 2.5-inch-wide column to the active document.
ActiveDocument.PageSetup.TextColumns.Add _ Width:=InchesToPoints(2.5), _ Spacing:=InchesToPoints(0.5), EvenlySpaced:=False
Use the SetCount method to arrange text into columns. The following example arranges the text in the active document into three columns.
