I am using OpenOffice 3.1.1
I have an index and I want that every click will take me to its paragraph.

An index may be the wrong choice. An index might contain entries referring to several different pages, so the OpenOffice Index generation dialog doesn't use hyperlinks. Since you apparently have a one-to-one correspondence between index entries and paragraphs, I would generate a Table of Contents instead, title it "Index", generate it with hyperlinks and place it at the end of the document.

Here's a link to a tutorial on how to generate a linked TOC (the author actually calls it an index)

The OpenOffice default is now to use Ctrl-Left_click to follow hyperlinks. If you want to change this to Left_click only, then on the main menu navigate Tools/Options/OpenOffice/Security and click the Options button in the Security and Options section and uncheck the Ctrl-click required to follow hyperlinks.
