There are a couple of open bugs relating to the use of charts within the DOCX file format:

  • FDO#40594, Excel/Word created DOCX does not display the chart (when opened by Writer).
  • FDO#55715, Calc/Writer created DOCX results in the chart not displaying (Writer) or a corrupt file message (Word).

It sounds to me like you are experiencing fdo#55715.

What operating system are you using? what language?

Does this happen when you create two new documents and do your thing? Does it happen always?

It could also be important to know in way you transfer it to writer.

I made a test in Version (Build ID: 0eaa50a932c8f2199a615e1eb30f7ac74279539) portable, XP Prof/SP3.

I copied chart in Calc selecting, ctrl+c, opened writer and pasted with ctrl+v Saved writer and closed LibO.

Next double clicking on file and it opened in Version (Build ID: f969faf) my deffault installation), Chart was to be seen

Next started up opened writer file and chart was visible.
