MS Word: Fixate text position in table's cell


In MS Word (*.rtf) I have setup a document for Herma 4077 labels.
In each cel (label) I want to place a image an address and a footer.

Placing the image at the top right and the address in the middle is easy, but I need the footer to stay at an exact position at the bottom of the cel (label). Now this will move whenever the address has more or less lines.

Is there any way to accomplish this (preferably without using an image for it)?

I am not aware of a way to set a footer within a cell.

One way round would be to split each cell in two with for example an 80/20 horizontal split. The top half (80%) being the majority of the text and the lower half (20%) being for the footer.

You can then adjust the border margins of the two sections; top half with no bottom margin, bottom half with no top margin.

See attached with adjusted cell sizes

Based on Herma 4097, each label:

Height  2.12cm
Width   4.57cm
Gap      0.25cm

I have adjusted height to:
Row 1   1.80cm
Row 2   0.32cm

I was able to create the first pair of rows and then copy the two rows and paste below existing rows to create the whole page. Pasting unfortunately added borders but easy enough to reformat and remove borders.

The idea is clear even though you used the wrong kind of labels. But I'll use the split cell approach.
Thank you!

Didn't have Herma 4077 available in my Options in Word and couldn't find dimensions on Herma website so went with a different label to show theory.
