The attached Word Doc has the values centered in the boxes.   First attempted to used the alignment icons but then noticed the height of the rows was indicating 0.03" which did not make sense.  To resolve, I copied the table to Excel and then copied it back to Word and adjusted the columns.   The WORD cell size and alignment icons now work properly.

You have set the paragraph spacing in the table to double spacing.

In order to correct the problem, you have to set the paragraph spacing in the table to single.

Once that is done, there are 2 ways to approach the solution:

Solution 1:
select the table and you will see the Table Tools tabs.

Layout tab ―> Table group ―> Properties option ―> Row tab ―> check Specify height box ―> enter 0.3" ―> select Exactly ―> click OK

Solution 2:
select the table.

Home tab ―> Paragraph group (the little square just right of the word Paragraph will open the panel) ―> set Spacing option to 6 pt before and 6 pt after ―> click OK
.
