This bug is there on openSUSE 12.3:
uname -a
Linux 3.8.9-5-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT x86_64 GNU/Linux

zypper info libreoffice-writer
Repository: LibreOffice:Stable
Name: libreoffice-writer
Arch: x86_64
Vendor: obs://build.opensuse.org/LibreOffice
Installed: Yes
Status: up-to-date

I opened someone's DOCX in LibreOffice, modified the table (everything was fine...), save in DOC 2003 (not DOCX) and reopened later.
See screenshot:
The content of the first column is mixed with those of the other columns "randomly", leaving empty cells.
The titles of the columns shift to right, the last one (WE) is written the first cell of the next row.
The numbers in percentage are not in their respective places. I am not sure about their right places, may be following the sequence of emptied cells.
Some text format changes.

Expected : 
Second column title should be "AA", last column "WE" (capitalized letters)
The cells contain numbers in percentage

When I open the example 01.doc file from bug reporter I do see that the formatting  of the table indeed gets distorted (see screenshot 01 docfile in word and LO).

Jolay: your screenshot is also helpful but without the doc file that screenshot was created from, we won't be able to reproduce and then fix the issue. So if you can, please attach the doc file containing the table in question.

Setting to NEW., OS to ALL.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.5 or 5.1.2 https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 

1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug 

3. Leave a comment with your results. 

4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
