Tables behave is kind of odd ways. If the table is wider than the frame it will extend outside the frame boundaries, but if it's taller it will break between rows. Changing the size of the text frame that contains a table will not affect the size of the at all.

 

You can move the table upwards by moving the top of the text frame higher on the page (but the whole table will move upward, the table won't change size) or you can remove wahtever is in the text pushing it below the top of the frame no

I can think of two reasons this could be happenig. Fiorst is there's something else in the cells above the text you can see (show hidden characters to check), or more likely, the top and or bottom inset values are set differntly for these two cells. Verrical justification works in the space between the insets which act just like page margins inside the cell.

Without seeing invisible characters I can only guess there is an empty paragraph above the table.

 

If your goal is to make the entire table take up more space on the page the only ways you can do that is to increase the heights of the rows and the widths of the columns or to put the table into a new frame by itself aand achor that frame into your text as an anchored object, then scale that. I have not tested the anchoring method and I'm not certain it will work but creating a new dcoument for the table and palcing that as an achored image probably would.

I just moved up and down the table frame and got what I expected.

 

I have another question.

 

There are two cells, both of which are aligend right and center.

But they don't look aligned.

Is there any way to make them aligned?

There's a third possibility I forgot, in case anyone finds this thread later. Text could also be set to align to the baseline grid, which would override and vertical alignment or leading values, and could also lead to pverset text in a cell if there is no gridline within the insets of a cell for alignment.
