Default Text placement in a table need to be changed

Hello, I've placed a table in my docx file and was about to put a specific text inside. However my pointer sets in 2 places either this from photo 1 (first from left) or (after pushing 'down arrow' button) 2 (second from left) by default. I'd like to have it placed as on photo 3 (third from left) just above the black line but cannot make such a move.
I cannot make a move with my table as well cause it's part of the bigger structure so I don't want have it destroyed.


Any solution?
Thanks in advance.

It would help to know how the black line was created, and to see a screen shot of the table with nonprinting characters displayed (click the ¶ button on the ribbon).

At a guess, though, the cursor in the first picture is in one paragraph and the visible text and line are in a second paragraph. To bring them closer together, right-click in the first paragraph and click Paragraph in the menu; if the Space After is not zero, change it to zero. If it's already zero, then look at the Space Before setting for the second paragraph and make that zero.

A screenshot is unlikely to be especially helpful in this case. Rather, you to attach an document to a post with the problem table. You can do this via the paperclip symbol on the 'Go Advanced' tab at the bottom of this screen.

I have finally sorted this out by clicking table properties and changing text wrapping from 'around' to 'none', thanks for your advices,
