  • You can insert a continuous section break at the end of the document to balance the columns.

    (In Word 2007/2010: position the insertion point at the end of the document; activate the Page Layout tab of the ribbon; in the Page Setup group, click Breaks > Continuous)

  • The text above the section break should remain unchanged...

  • Thank you so much for the reply.

    I have done it when my document, and it works well except when I inserting a bibliography section. Once I inserted it, the length of columns becomes different again.

    I am using word 2010.

    Thank you.
