How to align equation to the last line
I have numbered the equations on its right in my Word document and they are
aligned to the center when the equations have more than one line. I would like to align the equation numbers to the last line of the equation (or the bottom of the object) and wonder how I can do so. Thanks

Thanks The most reliable method is to use a twocolumn borderless table, with the equations in the left (wide) column and the equation numbers in the right (narrow) column. Select the right column, right click it, select Cell Alignment, and choose the bottom right alignment.

I have created a particular formatting style to automatically number the equations and align them horizontally and it's been very useful other than for this stated issue. So I'm wondering if it's possible to maintain this and just alter some formatting setting such that the equation numbers on the right can be align to the bottom of the equation object.

I don't think there's anything you can do in a style, but you can ask Design Science (www.dessci.com or www.mathtype.com), the company that supplies the Equation Editor to Microsoft. You should also look at their commercial product MathType, which (among many other enhancements) can make its own equation numbers.

His solution of using the table is the only way I know of to do it in Word. ("It" being aligning the number and the equation as you described.) Now if you're making web pages out of the Word document, that's another story all together, but I don't think that's the case. Jay mentioned MathType. He's right  MathType will do the numbering & referencing automatically. Even using MathType though, the only way I know of to align the bottom of the equation number with the bottom of the equation is to use a table.

How to align equation to the last line
EASY: Set the Format:Font:Character Spacing:Position to 3 pt lowered. This
removes the default equation alignment; the 3 pt lower accounts for the white space at the bottom of the image. Once you do it for one, use CTRLY to apply the same formatting to the other equations.
