    VBA for align text in shape or selected table cells

    Hi John, I've tried about 2 hours and several different version of code for something so simple (not for me though!).

    I need code please that aligns table text in PowerPoint for selected cells. That also works in for a text box. I know there's tools and button already, but making a ribbon I can't insert the msoNAME for these tools. I need a tool to align text to the top. (I can then guestimate for middle and bottom).

    Code I ended up close to it is:

    [VBA]
    Sub AlignTop()


    Dim tbl As Table
    Dim iCol As Integer
    Dim iRow As Integer
    Dim I As Integer
    On Error GoTo err


    Dim X As Integer
    Dim Y As Integer
    Dim otbl As Table
    Dim B As Long
    On Error GoTo err:
    Set otbl = ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange(1).Table
    otbl.Parent.Height = 0
    For X = 1 To otbl.Columns.Count
    For Y = 1 To otbl.Rows.Count
    With otbl.Cell(Y, X)
    .Shape.TextFrame2.VerticalAnchor = msoAnchorTop
    End With


    End Sub


    [/VBA]

    Your wisdom is much appreciated, thank you. And take care in these strange times.
    Thank you.

    Maybe

    Sub AlignTop()
    
    Dim iCol As Integer
    Dim iRow As Integer
    Dim otbl As Table
    On Error GoTo Err
    
    
    Set otbl = ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange(1).Table
    otbl.Parent.Height = 0
    For iRow = 1 To otbl.Rows.Count
    For iCol = 1 To otbl.Columns.Count
    
    
    With otbl.Cell(iRow, iCol)
    .Shape.TextFrame2.VerticalAnchor = msoAnchorTop
    End With
    Next iCol
    Next iRow
    Exit Sub
    Err:
    MsgBox "There was an error: " & Err.Description, vbCritical
    End Sub
