Figure 4–37. Centered data—centered vertically, that is
click one of the buttons shown in Figure 4–36. What these do is position data along a vertical axis
in the cell—at the bottom of a cell (the default, when you think about it), in the center (as above), or
even at the cell’s ceiling (Figure 4–38):

Just bear in mind that if you apply these formats to cells of normal heights you won’t see the above ,
effects. That’s because the default row height is too low to enable these to happen, and so you’ll need to
elevate the heights of the rows you want.
How do you do that? The technique is in many ways the right-angled equivalent of the
columnwidening methods we described in chapter 2. In order to raise a row height, click on the row’s lower
