Vertical Centering with a Letterhead Image on the Left Side

My office uses a letterhead image on the left side of the page with text centered vertically and wrapped to the right.  This was never a problem when we were using Word 2003; however, with Word 2010, I don't seem to be able to vertically center the text.  The page layout shows that it is vertically centered, but the text actually goes to the top of the page.  If I cut the letterhead image out, the text is vertically centered.  Is there a way to make this work in Word 2010?

Do you think you could post 2 screenshots - Word 2003 & Word 2007 - to get a better idea of the problem?

Thanks,

I no longer have the 2003 version of Word on my computer, so every document that I open  with Word 2010 that has the letterhead image and was created in Word 2003 is opening with the text at the top of the page rather than centered.  I found a letter that was created in Word 2003 and saved as a PDF.  It is the attached Sample 1 document.  I have also attached the document we use for our electronic letterhead template.  It is attached as Sample 2.  If you open Sample 2 and look at the page layout, you will see that the page is set to be centered vertically; however, it is not centered on screen or on a printed document.

Hi mjsimmer,

Lunch break is over - I placed the image in the header. now the page is vertically centered.

It looks lighter than before, but you can see that it prints correctly.

Cut the image, open Header, Paste image, Image - horiz. align Left (wrt page), vert. align Center (wrt page)...
