What is a wizard?

A wizard is a short series of dialog boxes that asks you a few questions and then creates an item like a chart according the your answers.

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

When Office XP 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 online in the Microsoft Office Template Gallery.
