The following command worked fine in my system (you need to have
tex4ht directory created prior to compilation):

  mk4ht oolatex myfile.tex "" "" " -d./tex4ht/"

The arguments to mk4ht need to be quoted. Secondly,  '/' character
shall be appended to your destination directory name, if not, all
files will be copied to a file namely, "tex4ht."

However, I noted that "t4ht" binary which does all the file parsing
and manipulation work at the end of post-processing of the *.dvi file
(by "tex4ht" binary), copied myfile.odt and myfile.xml to the
destination folder where myfile.xml might be unwanted for some.

What precisely was your problem?

Best regards
