When opening in LibreOffice Writer 188.8.131.52 a .docx file created in Microsoft Word 2013, a specific table is transformed into text. Saving the word document first as a word97-2003.doc document solves the problem. The files of the table both in .docx and .doc formats are attached.
Here is the information on the Word version:
Word2013 (15.0.5007.1000) MSO (15.0.5007.1000) 32 bits Partie de Microsoft Office Famille et Etudiant 2013 ID de produit (Product ID) : 00197-19038-49802-AA423
Opening the copy of the table in .docx format in LibreOffice Writer 184.108.40.206
Table appears as text, not as a table
User Profile Reset: No
It seems to be a bug related to the way Word 2013 formats or creates the table.

Table in .doc format
Opening the doc with LibreOffice, saving with LibreOffice as docx, opening this last docx, open with the table. I have not word to test.

> Table in .docx format
Document has .doc format => Can you prove, if this is the right document?
I can confirm with LO 4.4 and Version: 220.127.116.11.alpha0+

I see the table in word2010
Confirmed in 6.2 master that the doc version still solves the problem. It reads fine, and roundtripping that to DOCX is also fine.
Confirmed that the DOCX version still cannot be read, and used bibisect43all to observe that this has never worked. Marking as inherited from OOo.
This is one for the experts. unotext.cxx ConvertCell is throwing lang::IllegalArgumentException() at the end of Row 11.
warn:JCL:17648:17648:sw/source/core/unocore/unotext.cxx:2118: of::convertToTable cells 0 - 
starting ConvertCell pLastCell[0x55fc525eede0] rowNodes.empty?
because it expects the startcell to immediately follow the end. I notice that this is where the merged first cell stops and becomes 6 columns again.
Round-tripping this file in Word2003 "fixes" it, but after round-tripping in 2010 it is still "broken".

The problem was fixed recently
There is a <w:cr/> tag in the file that caused the table not to appear. This one was recently fixed!
