Text dissapears when frame is moved - Adobe Indesign Windows

I have some text in a frame on top of a small box. When I move the frame up to align it with the upper corner of the box the text disappears or jumps to the top or bottom of the frame. When I use the selection tool to move the frame I can see the frame move, but the text doesn't until the edge of the frame touches the text then the text jumps up or down. Is there something I can change to keep this from happening?...

    Depending on the severity of what you're seeing you've either got text wrap
    selected for the object you are aligning the text to, or you have the text
    selected to align to the doent grid.

    Thank you for this answer, which helped me in my own problem today of
    leading changing when I dragged a paragraph from the pasteboard (leading
    fine) to the doent (leading enormous). I couldn't find the answer
    anywhere and didn't know whether to scream, throw the laptop, miss my
    deadline
    or go back to PageMaker. Thanks to you, I don't need to do any of these. :-)
    Had a time finding the Baseline Grid specifications dialog box, but now I
    hope I will remember.
