IllegalStateException: Unexpected table container

Hi Guys,

I am getting an IllegalStateException when I try to convert the attached doc from docx to HTML.

Here is the stack trace:

Here is the conversion code (in Scala):

val options = new HtmlSaveOptions(SaveFormat.HTML)
// Prevent scaling of images.
// Ensure the file names for images are sanitized.
// Ensure external images are still linked.
// Ensure lists are exported as / and  tags.

for {
  // Load the document.
  asposeDoc <- Try(new AsposeDocument(file.getAbsolutePath))
                   // Convert to HTML.
                  _ <- Try(, options))
} yield {}
object FilenameSanitizingSavingCallback extends IImageSavingCallback {
   * Handle an image save callback. This will force the filename to be lowercase.
   * @param imageSavingArgs Information about the image.
  def imageSaving(imageSavingArgs: ImageSavingArgs): Unit = {
    // Ensure file names are lowercase and do not contain invalid characters.
      imageSavingArgs.getImageFileName.toLowerCase.replaceAll("[^-a-z0-9_\/\.]", "")
