Libreoffice shows the attached doc file as a copletely empty table, while when opened in google docs, it contains text. Also attached a screenshot showing the differences.

LibreOffice 3.3 - 5.2

Confirmed. This has been a problem since the fork so I'm updating version field.

Updating to:
Major - loss of major functionality with this kind of interoperability, table is entirely empty.
Low - default for major bugs is high but see explanation below

Given how long this has been present and that we apparently don't have duplicate bugs, I suspect not a lot of people are affected...currently we have one test document that is showing a problem. If we had repro steps from scratch, maybe we could raise it to medium.

This document is not actually a table - it is all line-art connected as if it was a complicated table.  The text is all in autoshape boxes. So a lot of "artistic license" went into the creation of this document.

Set to Low priority (as per comment 2) and changed the summary (was "FILEOPEN TABLE table in .doc file appears completely empty") since this is not truly a table.
