Additionally, you could look at the master pages / page templates (don't remember anymore how they
are called in Quark, am InDesigner now) and check
- if there is a text frame on the master page and
- if this a document with facing pages, if both pages contain a text box and if they are linked
(use link tool as described by Chris).

Best of luck,
