My version of OOo does not have [Keyboard] as a tab under [Tools]>[Customize]. As of yet I have not found it under any other tabs.

OpenOffice.org 2.4.1 (openoffice.org-core 1:2.4.1-lubuntu2, Mon Jun 30 10:45:22 UTC 2008)

My apology. I did not have a document open so I did not get the tabs.
With a document open I get the Keyboard tab, now your whole post makes sense and works.

I've just started using openoffice and my first document is one where I am highlighting various texts with three styles I have in a word document. What I want to do is assign a shortcut key to "RED", "BLUE", "GREEN" styles. But they don't appear in the list of styles and there is no shortcut from the styles menu for "create shortcut" - do I have to go back to word?

OK, I was wrong .... it appears they were in the list of paragraph styles!
