Hi there. I have a twocolumn document class for a LaTeX file but I want some pages to be excluded form this attribute, i.e. be single-column. I'm quite new to this so be gentle. How how how do I do it? Thanks

It depends is the unfortunate answer, at least based on my previous experiance. However, try a \thispagestyle{plain}, theres a good chance it will work, though it will possibly remove styling you want to keep. In which case just google the command - theres a whole list of strings you can stick within that one.

If you havn't allready have a look at http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/lshort/english/lshort.pdf - thats basically where I started on LaTex. Its ultimatly one complicated beast, even if it does produce really slick results, but I don't think anyone ever trully gets to grips with it till their hair is grey.

\onecolumn will start a new one-column page. Use \twocolumn to get back to two-column mode (again on a new page).
