I spent too long trying to find an answer to this, so having found one, I thought I'd share it here.
My thanks to BigPup who put me on the right track here.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=583567 (Look about halfway down the page)

Following these instructions, if I change abiword to libreoffice3.5 it works. The '3.5' is obviously important.

Just wanted to share a 'eureka' moment with others on the search.

Sorry to ask a stupid question, but "How?"
Thanks for the reminder of the WIKI too. I keep forgetting about that resource.

It's fairly easy

1) You need to get a wiki account from Raffy, email- raffymn AT yahoo.com
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/WikiIndex

2) Here is a guide to creating a page
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/CreateNewPage

for example if you wanted to make a page HowToSetDefaultProgram

2a) type http://puppylinux.org/wikka/HowToSetDefaultProgram into the URL

2b) select create page when prompted

2c) this page can be linked on other wiki pages simply by writing HowToSetDefaultProgram or [[HowToSetDefaultProgram]]

cool Cool
