Afternoon folks!

Recently installed Open Office as my MS Office Trial Offer ended. My question is do ya'll know how to set OO as the default program when opening documents, spreadsheets etc. Currently it still tries to use the old MS Office programs and shoots back an error at me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. TIA!

Select one of the files for which you’d like to change the associated default application.

Press Command+I to open the Get Info window

Under "Open with" select the application you’d like to use

Under Use this application to open all documents like this click on Change All… and follow the prompts

There is also a Cool App (free) for doing this that creates an App in the Sys. Prefs.: RCDefaultApp

Welcome to the forums!
