Default Vertical align to bottom of cell when row wraps to next page

This should be easy, but in years I have always used workarounds, never figured out how to do this properly: How to align table contents to the bottom of a cell?

I can choose vertical align bottom, of course, but this only works as long as the row does not wrap to the next page. As soon as the row wraps, content will be aligned to the bottom of the upper page rather than the bottom of the cell.

Any idea anyone? Thanks!

I think you're dealing with a situation for which there are only workarounds, such as padding out the top of the cell. I don't know of anything you can do that would get Word to not treat the bottom of the page as synonymous with the bottom of the cell in such cases.

Thanks, Paul. So it's not just me ...
Padding out would only work, if the height was known, wouldn't it. What I do, is to add an extra row and put the last row of text in the high column into that extra row, and the text of the other column at the bottom of that extra row.
I use this for offers and invoices, where the description is in the left column and the price needs to be at the very bottom of the right column.
Where I run into trouble with my method, is when the cells have margins. Then the added rows have too much spacing, and I have to set margins per added row which can become a big mess when there are many rows and I need to change something.

Other than splitting the affected cell into two rows, with the split positioned at or below the page boundary (e.g. just above where the price is to appear), I don't see a workaround that would be any simpler than padding out the row.
