Go to the master page(s) and select the text frame (Ctrl-click it). Then
select Graphics > Object Properties (or right-click and select Object
Properties). In the Customize Text Frame dialog, make sure the 2-column
layout is set up correctly and Balance Columns is unchecked. It sounds
like your body pages may have multiple text frames on top of each other
or otherwise don't match/use the correct master page(s). You may want to
review the manual/help topics on master page usage, reapply master
pages, and delete any text frames that shouldn't be there.
