You need to reset the file associations for the documnt types you do not wish OpenOffice to
open.  Normally ths is doe by right clicking on a typical document of a type and selecting
Open With option from the pop-up menu.  There is usually a setting towards the bottom of the
dialog wibdow that open to say "always use this application".  I have not access to a Mac,
so the real wordings may be slightly different.
