Thanks topinforma !
I downloaded oracle-pdfimport and, although it took a long time to load the (16 page) document, it worked as I wanted. I simply copied the relevant pages from Draw and pasted them into Calc. A bit of adjusting of row & column sizes and I now have just what I need.
Interesting that OO, without pdfimport, loads garbage into Writer.

 Edit: Edited to point to the Tutorial which is kept up to date. 

See [Tutorial]How do I view or edit a PDF file with OpenOffice?
AOO 4.1.6, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
