I RECENTLY INSTALLED OPEN OFFICE 4.1.2 AND WHEN I TRIED TO SET UP A SPREADSHEET, I WAS TOLD THAT I NEEDED TO INSTALL JAVA RUNTIME ENVIRONMENT. WHERE DO I FIND THIS PROGRAM AND HOW DO I INSTALL IT ??

Greetings and welcome to the community forum!

Spreadsheets don't normally require Java. What are you trying to do, exactly?

You must download and install a 32 bit Java from www.java.com as OpenOffice is a 32 bit application. This version of Java can live alongside other java versions. It will have 586 in its filename. When installed it must be selected in /Tools /Options /OpenOffice /Java.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 20.04.1 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP

Right, ok. Some (most?) of the wizards require Java.

Which wizard are you trying to use? What menu steps are you following, File > Wizards > ... ? Something else?

Again, I don't know of any wizards for spreadsheets. There may be a different/better way to do what you want.
