OpenOffice problem

I have mandrake 9.2 and OpenOffice 1.1.0.
I have been using writer and Calc and they worked fine but then I changed my login name and my home directory, copying all my files form the old directory to the new one.

Te problem now is that when i work with a openoffice document (one i had created in the old home directory) and click the save icon, the following error message appears:

Error loading BASIC of document
General error
General input/output error

It seems OpenOffice is still looking for something in the old home directory. How can I tell it to look in the new home directory for this documents????

Thanks in advance.

I't not to sure but I would probably try greping recursively through your .openoffice directory to look for config files containing your old home directory then edit the files and change the values to reflect the new location.

thanks, that worked.
I found references in several files, changed them and
now the error message does not appear.
