Description alistairmann 2007-03-01 12:35:50 UTC
Tables within tables are fine if original ".doc" file is created with MSWord
2002, but not if first created in Writer.

+Open a blank Writer document
+create a table of 2x2 cells
+In top right cell, create a second table of 2x2 cells
+At top left of second table, write "Hello"
+At bottom left of second table, write "World"
+File , Save As. Filename: "test", Save As Type: "Microsoft Word 97/200/XP (.doc)"
+Close Writer.
+Reopen Writer, test document

=Second table will no longer be present, text present as four vertical lines as
if "Hello\n\nWorld\n\n"
=Identical result if same test document opened in MSWord 2002.

+Create the same test document in MSWord 2002, then open and resave the document
from Writer. Both tables survive intact suggesting above observation as defect
rather than expected behavior.

Thanks for your time!
