I am very upset! Following Libre's instructions, I uninstalled OpenOffice before installing Libre 4.0, but when using Libre to open an OpenOffice doc, the table format was gone. How can I to get the table formatting back?

You should have warned this would happen!

It is impossible to warn on all of the bugs that are present in product. Some of them may not even been known as bugs. I suggest to report a bug (from LibreOffice menu Help | Send Feedback). And if OpenOffice works for you, you will probably need to reinstall it back until bug is fixed.

Not only was the table format gone, so was all the data in the middle columns. The text included only data in 1st & last columns. OpenOffice had opened this Word file just fine, keeping all the data & formatting intact. Now I have to rebuild ALL of that data, which will take a huge amount of time.

It is impossible to predict everything. If you have problems after migrating from OOo (AOO) to LibO you need to report a bug with with detailed description, problem file and screenshots (if available). Be sure to specify in summary "REGRESSION from "
