Default Columns in Word 2003; not the automatic one though


I would like to have 2 columns in a word document, question left side, answer right side.

Automatic columns don't seem to work because they depend on paragraph content, some of the paragraphs I have are just one line.

Any ideas on this? I thought about Excel but that has other issues

Try using a table using 2 or 3 columns. Left column for the question; middle column minimized to separate the questions and answers; and, the right column for the answer. See the attached file.

Thank you JimP, how do I make that table?
Or rather, how can I make that table on the subsequent 150 pages I need?
