Filipe:  No joy with that command:
[root at dell2400 ~]# rpm -e $(rpm -qa openoffice.org-\*-2.3.0-\*)
rpm: no packages given for erase
[root at dell2400 ~]#

But, as I was writing a reply to you, I got an idea, which was to use
your syntax, with "yum remove" and it did remove 10 packages.     :-)

OK. I have OpenOffice.org Writer 3.1 open.    :-)
There is a big problem with the way the .docx file was displayed. It
is not pretty. I can see most or all of the words, but they are not
where they should be. A formatting problem that I can fix?

Thank you, again, for sharing your time and expertise.  Much
appreciated!   Lanny
