Could someone tell me how I can make my computer automatically open office documents with OpenOffice and not Microsoft Office?

ctrl+click a document->open with->other
select openoffice and check off "always open with"

click on the word document (or excel spreadsheet, or whatever), hit "apple-i", then under "open with" choose OpenOffice (isn't it NeoOffice for Macs?), and click "Change All..."

That should be it.

edit: what discounteggroll said works too

That works if I do it for each document, but is there a way to make it so that everytime I download a new Word or Excel file it automatically opens with OpenOffice instead of Microsoft Office.
