hard to say without seeing the specific files.

generally speaking, what i can say, is that openoffice should be able
to reliably open a .doc file for each feature which can actually be
imported by scribus.

imho, your problems are related with something else in your workflow,
but it's hard for me to find out without knowing more about what you
are doing.
