This is not a question of file format (DOCX or whatever); it's a question of having multiple page 
styles (at least one portrait style and one landscape style) in the document. You just need to 
specify both styles, according to use and when you make a page break from one style to the other, 
do so explicitly:

Great, thanks John. 
I thought it was one of the those odd issues that hadn't been catered for in LO keeping the DOCX 
format correctly and i was thinking it needed a bug report as well.
