text box resize and text justification

I have labels linked to an excel sheet using the Barcode Label Software. There are three text boxes, first one with the bar code, and the other two with pure text. The barcode box is fine since only a number changes. In the text boxes the length of the string varies a lot. I have the text boxes set to upper left anchor and word wrap. The text always appears to be center justified in the vertical. If the string is too long to fit then the box is resized off the bottom margin of the label. All subsequent labels then use this resized box and the text is off of the bottom margin. Can I lock the size of the text box? Can I set the text so it has top left justification?

Operating System: windows vista or 7

Application: excel

For all three text-fields using a font-size of 3 (although not an option in the drop-down, you may type it in) seems to fit even the most amount of data.

* The anchor is only for the box (as you can see delineated by thin circles in the picture above) not the text in it. So there isn't any way to make the text (when using word-wrap) change the vertical alignment ("center justified in the vertical") from within the box.

* You may change the size of the box in its properties dialog:

As far as the matrix size, the program has validation built in to make sure the barcode is compliant to DataMatrix standards, so I would just play around with the settings until you find the size that suits you best.
