I had open office 3.2 installed and working perfectly

Open Office no longer worked

It explains the problem, .. yum installs a package that is incompatible with OOo 3.2
Your system is probably installed the wrong version of the package openoffice.org-ure.
Example on Fedora YUM update upgrade openoffice.org-ure packet from
openoffice.org-ure-1.6.0-9483 (right package)
to openoffice.org-ure-3.1.1-19.26.fc12 (wrong package).
It explained how to edit yum.conf so it will not do this and how to reinstall open office.
Just thought I'd share
