Column Shortcode Not Working!

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Hi,
I am trying to use the following code in my K2 article:
[row id="ROW_ID" class="ROW_CLASS"]
[col class="span7"]ADD_CONTENT_HERE[/col]
[col class="span5"]ADD_CONTENT_HERE[/col]
[/row]


But the site refuses to load the code/content properly.
It literally comes out on the page like this:

Office 2010
[row id="ROW_ID" class="ROW_CLASS"]
[col class="span7"]This training will assist when migrating from Office 2003 to Office 2010. Learn where menu and toolbar commands are in Office 2010 and related products.[/col]
[col class="span5"]Office 2010 Training[/col]
[/row]


How do I get the code to work properly? I have also tried using the shortcode plugin at the base of the editor, but I can't understand how to use it so i just want to use the code from the Corporex Demo.

NOTE: This site is on a local network, so I cannot offer any type of access to it other than screenshots. I can't even offer a link to the site as no public address exists.
There is no possible way for me to give anyone access to this site, so please do no ask for access.

Please help!!
Thanks,
Sarah

EDIT:
I have just tried to insert an Accordion shortcode using the Helix Shortcode Plugin at the bottom of the editor.
Here is a screenshot of the result and it is exactly how the column short code is appearing - nothing is working!!

Hi Sohan,
I realise that the shortcode generator is not working, nor is simply adding the code to the K2 item.
Can you please offer some assistance as to how I might fix this issue? I really need to have the ability to use shortcode!!
Thanks,
Sarah

Sorry, Sohan but I can't give out any type of access. This site is only on a local network that has no access to the "outside world".
Do you have any other suggestions?
Thanks,

Go to Options tab. And make the Prepare Content yes. May be it will help.
Also check the screenshot: http://prntscr.com/7cxek0

As I am having this issue in my K2 items and not in a module, that fix is not applicable - unfortunately. I wish it was that easy.

I realise you have said that, but I have a Joomla 2.5 site where I am using the "column" shortcode and it is working successfully - IN K2!!
Whilst I did not use the actual Helix Shortcode Generator plugin - I just copied the "column" code from the example on the demo template and it works. It is working on all my articles on that site!!
So what I am wondering, is why isn't the code working on my Joomla 3 site - I don't even want to use the Helix Shortcode Generator, I find it very difficult to use I would much rather just copy in the code!
Please help me fix this!

Thanks,
Sarah

Download the text file from here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/w5cb9825w9zqtxa/accordion.txt?dl=0
Paste the code on your k2 items (you have to toggle the editor first).
Hope this will help.

Hi Sohan,
Thanks very, very much! This accordion code is working!!!

Are you able to provide me with a similar option to use columns in the K2 articles? I do need to be able to use the coloumn shortcode, but if the shortcode will not work in this Joomla 3 Corporex site, then I need an alternative...?

Thanks again!!! :)
Sarah

Thankyou Sohan!!! :D
It's a little sad that the Helix Shortcode doesn't work in K2, but this work around definitely gets the job done!!
Thanks again!!
