Can Apache Open Office Read Docx.dll Output?

Apache OpenOffice can read Word documents in .docx format just fine. When I create a .docx document, it cannot read it but rather gives the following general I/O error:

However, if I open the document in Word and save it using Word (e.g., make a minor change and save ) then OpenOffice will read it fine. Has anyone gotten Open Office to read the file without first using Word?

Is this with simple document or with charts included? It's a known issue with DocX that charts created in DocX don't work in Word 2013 (works fine in Word 2010) but maybe it's also the same problem in Open Office?

This is for a single document with multiple tables but no charts.
