The attached DOC file contains a simple table in a footnote. LibreOffice does not import the table. The table content is converted to plain text.

Comment 2 bug 136779

In DOCX bug 132611 I noted that the layout code sw flowfrm.cxx contains the comment
    SAL_WARN("sw.core", "Tables in footnotes are not truly supported");

Until LO properly handles laying out tables and such here, there is no point in doing anything about importing or exporting them.
Comment 7 Timur 2021-03-30 09:24:43 UTC
DOCX was fixed by converting tables to floating during import/export in https://git.libreoffice.org/core/commit/e11c51eefe8c3210cef2b5850f401ba67a401d01

I wonder if it's possible to do similar with DOC. So adding someone who can answer that. Thanks.
