So LO 188.8.131.52 and a table in Writer ...
If you delete a column in a table in a text (Writer) document where
any of the cells in that column are merged with cells in adjacent
columns, it appears that the neighbouring columns containing those
merged cells will be deleted too. If any row has all its cells
merged (or if some combination of merging involves all columns), then
you will delete all columns, or in other words delete the entire table.
To avoid this, you may have to demerge (i.e. split) the rogue cells
or perhaps to split the table, so that you can delete the required
column in a part of the table not containing the merged cells.
I trust this helps.
