A question about temporary files

I understand that MS Office creates temporary files when it opens spreadsheets, Word documents etc. and these could be left on the hard disk after closing MS Office.

If I open an MS Office document or spreadsheet using Portable OOo and the file being opened is on a USB memory stick, would there be any temporary files left somewhere on the host computer?

No

Because it's the actual program that's creating the temp files, not the file it self.

When you say "MS Office document or spreadsheet" your talking about the *.doc and *.xls extensions, which (I think) DO belong to MS, but it's still just a file type, sort of "the standard", and it has no will power over what it does on your machine.
