Just type dα (copy/paste from here if necessary – but it shouldn't be).

You can get the OOoLatex extension here:

http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/project/ooolatex

You will also need to install LaTeX and GhostScript. Googling I found this for Mac:

Are you using the latest stable version of OpenOffice? Or NeoOffice? Have you tried running individual elements of the macro from Tools>Macros>Run Macro... ?

A late reply, but an approach that results in a better spacing is by inserting the alpha character directly in the calc code:
Code:

d%alpha "versus" dα

Paste this in to see the difference.
