I played around with this and was able to correct the problem even
though I'm still not sure exactly what was wrong.
There was a minor discrepancy in the column width on the Right/Left
master pages and this, combined with balance columns being turned on,
resulted in the problem. Unfortunately, fixing the column widths
didn't fix it but turning column balance off did. Since column
balance is essential to the files, I ended up rebuilding the
template with correct column widths and column balance ON and
importing Page Layouts and Doc Properties into the files.
I still don't know why importing corrects it when making those same
changes in an individual file doesn't but hey, at least it's working
Thanks to all who responded -
