I am new to sections but I just created a document with three sections. The middle section was to have two columns while the other two were in single column format. Everything went well and I saved the document and closed oo. Later, I reopened the document and the entire document had two columns. If I changed the first section to a single column, all sections changed even though the sections were visible and oo seemed to recognize the section boundaries. The save format was .doc. Any ideas?

It's quite likely (and a shame) that the export filter failed here. Save in .odt format, only save as .doc if you have to (send it to somebody who demands .doc).
