When you reopen the word file - the calc table is misformated

When you attach calc tables into the word file, save the file and close; then you reopen the word file you find the calc table with strange format. When you double click the table and fade away it works well and turns to be reformated well again. 
This action is repeated whenever you close a word file with calc table inserted.

Confirming. The .odt version of the document with inserted calc table opens and closes without issue in LO
Build ID: de093506bcdc5fafd9023ee680b8c60e3e0645d7

With a ww8 filter export to .doc or OOXML .docx -- a roundtrip reopen with LibreOffice ends with table mangled with text mispositioned in columns, or simply truncated.

The .doc opens cleanly in MS Word 2007 / Word 2013.

In Word 2007 or Word 2013, the exported .docx has some minor formatting issues--font scaling/kerning, and missing table border on left edge.
