I don't have OpenOffice installed on this laptop, but, if my memory serves me right, the search function is very similar to that of MS. So this is what you would do in Word (hopefully, it'll help you with your problem).
Open Find or Replace (ctrl + F or ctrl + H), select the tab that says More>>>. At the bottom there are a couple tabs that say Format and Special. Select Special and you'll see Tab Character in the drop-down menu. Simply select it and you'll be able to find or replace all the tabs in your document.
Hope this helps.
