The original odt file created with LO Writer

I created a table in an .odt document, filled it with data (text), saved the document and opened it again and then surprise ! Some of the data in the table has changed from the original text I had filled in to zeros !

Fortunately for me, I thought of trying to open the .odt document with MS Word and there was my whole data intact (so I guess it was still in the file but LO Writer had a problem reading it, even though it was it that had saved the file).

I am attaching the .odt file and the .doc file (the .odt, opened with MS Word and saved in .doc format).
I am carrying on my word with MS Word because I cannot allow to loose data or fill it again and again.

This seems similar with bug 119377.

So you can see the original data before it was replaced by zeros.

So what is the difference in comparison with bug 119377?

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if you can describe differences. Change it to RESOLVED DUPLICATE, if there are no differences.
