Hi, I found an on-line dictionary http://www.ordbogen.com which says that it is

oliven - olivenen - oliven - olivenerne eller olivenene

Sound weird though, especially "olivenen", so I guess we need a Dane to confrim this. In Swedish it is

oliv - oliven - oliver - oliverna.

Det er som HelenCarlsson sagde.

en oliven - olivenen - flere oliven - alle olivene(r)ne

Det lyder lidt mærkeligt, men det er rigtigt (så siger også Den Danske Ordbog)
