Hold it there, a text frame is NOT the same as a column. A text frame can have several columns.

So, to get several columns on a page you can use different approaches.

One approach is to use one text frame over the whole page and set it to have several columns. However that does not (currently) give you much control over the columns.

The other approach is to insert on text frame for each column. This takes a bit more work (at least until text frames on master pages are editable) but gives much more control for each column.

There are even more ways. You could for example insert one big, 2-column, text frame on the page, and then on top of it, in the middle, put a second, narrower, single column text frame. And set the bottom frame to flow around the top frame.
