Have you tried printing to see if they are really gone? 
I have what sounds like a similar problem with Word 2002 SP3. When I
import EMF and then convert to MS Office Drawing, ungroup and edit,
various features of the graphs including lines seem to disappear. When I
go searching (usually by individually sending-to-back the bits I can see
like the graph background area) I discover the missing elements and can
reorder them to the top. However if I page-down and then page-up so the
graph goes off screen and then back on screen, the lines have
disappeared again.  No amount of reordering will get them to stay
permanently on top of the background and yet when I print the lines are
magically there and all is in order.

All that is left are the blue and white background objects. I've tried
all the work-arounds I can think of,
including copying to Word, copying to Powerpoint on other computers,
re-ordering the objects, copying graphs as enhanced metafiles,
and using different color schemes.

If anyone has any insight into my error, I would be extremely
