What you want to occur is not controlled by the cell margins but the Cell
Alignment.
In 2003 and prior, select the cell, right mouse click, Cell Alignment
options will appear, also see under Table Properties, Cell tab, Vertical
Alignment options.
Not sure about 2007 (you don't mention which version you are using) but a
search on cell alignment should point you int he rght direction.

Hope this helps

I addition to what DeanH suggests, if the paragraphs in your table have space-
after formatting, they may not appear to be bottom aligned even though they
are.

Solution is easy
Go to Line and Paragraph spacing and click 'remove space after paragraph.'
