    What's a Wizard? (Any)

    What's a Wizard? I've used them.
    When I make my own, are they a set of, say, 6 GUI forms which are variously .Shown and .Hidden from VBA code, or am I better off using a Multi-Page control with 6 pages?
    I used Multi-Page about 10 years ago, in Word97, so I figure that they work.

    I have 33 controls grouped into six logical groups, hence 6 pages/forms, each with a specific objective towards the final goal.

    A long time ago, Microsoft had a "Wizard Creator" Wizard; it showed that a Wizard is a userform with a multipage control whose Style property has been set to 2 - fmStyleNone so that the tab strip at the top isn't displayed. Command buttons labeled Previous and Next are used to move between the tab pages.

    Thanks Alan, "Common Characteristics of Wizards" and its friends was the most re-assuring.
