    Wizards are a good way to get started using a feature in Access which you may
    not use often, or are about to use for the first time. However, with some
    experience you will often find that it is quicker simply to make a copy of
    something, and change it rather than use a wizard.

    As an example if you are creating a set of reports, you will probably be
    quicker to make a copy of the report and then customise the report changing
    the data source.

    The beauty of Access is it allows you to do things in so many different
    ways, which you find changes as you gain more experience with using the

    I personaly don't tend to use the wizards, but I often use the expression

    So in summary it is down to you, there is not hard and fast rule here.

    The wizards are a diverse bunch. Some are much better than others. The
    report label wizard does a good job. If you're printing to standard labels,
    it can be a big time saver. Many of the command button wizards, on the other
    hand, produce very poor code, using unreadable 'DoMenuItem' syntax that has
    been obsolete since the release of Access 97.

    There's no 'one-size-fits-all' answer to this question. I would never use
    the above-mentioned command button wizards. But to someone who is not a
    professional developer and does not wish to learn VBA, who just wants to
    knock together a quick-and-dirty throwaway tool for their own one-off use,
    then even the poorest of the command button wizards may be a timer saver.
