Thanks for your inquiry. Please use PageSetup.TextColumns property to get a collection that represents the set of text columns. You can use TextColumnCollection.Count property to get the number of columns in the section of a document. Please check the following code example.

Document document = new Document(MyDir + "renamed_c016d.docx");
