Word 2007 - Picture as banner and columns

I'm trying to creat a form in Word and I have a picture that needs to the top of the document from left to right. The problem is that I need to have columns after the picture, but the picture gets cut in half once i put the columns in? Does anyone know how to do this so I can have a picture at the top of a document and insert columns below it where the pictures doesn't get cut.

Hello Tallman,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Only way I know to accomplish this in Word is to put the banner at the top and then insert a 2 cell/column table below it. Give the table columns a fixed width so they don't resize to the text. When you have all the info in the columns, you can select the table and select no border to make it disappear.

I'm working in 2010 Beta, but should be the same for 2007.

Hope this helps.

Gary

Insert your picture, then below it insert a section break (continuous). You can find this at Page Layout > Breaks. Position your cursor below the section break, then hit the 2 column button. Just tried it, worked a treat, picture intact, text below in 2 columns
