What is a wizard?

A wizard is a short series of dialog boxes that asks you a few questions and then creates an item, such as a chart, based on your answers.

If you can operate a dialog box, you should have no problem using a wizard.

When Office 2003 was installed on your computer, several wizards were installed on your computer. The Microsoft Windows installer loads other wizards the first time you try to use them. There are more wizards available on the Web in the Microsoft Office template gallery.
