on newer MacOs versions where Java 64 bit is default the OOo Netbeans
plugin doesn't work really well. Wizards using the type browser (which
connects to the office) doesn't work because the office is 32 bit and
doesn't support 64 bit.

I found a workaround to force Netbeans to run in a 32 bit VM. Well it's
just a workaround and ideally we would have a 64 bit office version for
MacOS in the near future but that is a different story.

Anyway you can either start NetBeans with the '-J-d32' option

/Applications/NetBeans\ 6.9.1.app/Contents/MacOS/netbeans -J-d32

or you can tweak your NetBeans installation to force using a 32 bit VM
always by tweaking the netbeans.conf file and add the '-J-d32' option to
the default options.

For example:
NetBeans 6.9.1.app/Contents/Resources/NetBeans/netbeans.conf

netbeans_default_options="-J-d32 ..."

It makes at least the work with NetBeans and the plugin a little bit
easier ;-)
