Oh, OK... you don't want to rotate the text 90°. You want to keep it normal, you just want the text to be positioned either at the top, center, or bottom of a tall label or textbox.

No, there's no way to automatically vertically align text that I know of. Access assumes that if you want to position text vertically, you would just move the entire label or textbox to the position you wanted. So instead of specifying center align to a 3-inch tall label, you have a normal height label and you just click and drag it so the text is approx. 1½ inches from the top and bottom of your 3-inch area.

Barring doing that, the only way to manually position text in a tall label is to click the label once so your cursor is inside the label, place your cursor before the desired text, and move it down by using SHIFT+ENTER until the text is in the middle.
