Adding a two-column bulleted list in Word 2003

Help!

I'm creating a document in word (resume) and I want to add bullets to a two column list...How do I do it? The list looks like this:

*Apraiser *Developer
*Auditor *Rate Review

I know how to get the bullets on the first row but not the second! Help!!!

1.
go to Format, then Columns and choose the number of columns you want.
2.
go to Format, then Bullets & Numbering and choose the type of bullet or other that you want
3.
Start typing and you will see a bullet or what ever you chose before each line. Once you get to the end of the page, the 2nd column will start and the bullets will continue. Remember that multi column format is like a newspaper in that you must fill the first column inorder to roll on to the 2nd column.

It isn't clear from your description that what you want is columns or possibly an unbordered table that is comprised of 2 columns.

The description above is obviously for true columns. If you want a table, come on back.

Bullets in word document

Thanks for your answer but I only wanted to bullet one section in the document and not the entire page. So you were saying that I want an unboardered table? How do I do that?

You can do the following anywhere on the page and make it as large as you need:
1.
Go to Table, then Insert, then Table, then choose "1" for number of columns and "2" for number of rows.
2.
Leave "fixed column width" at Auto--for the moment.
3.
Click OK and you should see a 1 row by 2 column table with standard black borders around the entire table and a separator between the 2 columns. Keep the borders until you're through with this part of your document. It makes it easier to see whats going on.
4.
Highlight the ENTIRE table, then go to Table, Autofit, Fixed Column Width. This will hold the width of each of the two columns so that if you type the equivalent of more than one line, it will automatically wrap to the next line in the column.
5.
Click in the first column and then go to Format, then Bullets & Numbering and choose the type of bullet or other that you want.
6.
Do what ever typing you need to do. There will be a bullet (or) after each pressing of the Enter Key.
7.
When you''re through with the first column, then repeat step 5 for the 2nd column.
8.
When you're through with the typing, then highlight the entire table one more time.
9.
Go to Format, Border and Shading, Click None on the Setting area, then click on each line in the Preview Area. You will see the lines disappear. Press OK.
10.
Your table is now without any borders.
11.
Click once just below the table and continue on with the rest of your document.

Hope this gets you started. You can change column sizes and do anything else that you need to after the basic setup.

Good luck
