    Hi,
    I am not sure that this is the right forum for this question? But I have been trying to find either a book(s) or online site that gives a step by simpile step. On what actions you have to take to build a Access wizard. Is there a forum where they answer all the stupid questions I have on how to build a wizard. The books I have seem to talk over my head or seem to think I am at their level of knowledge. I keep feeling that their are pieces missing in what they are telling me.
    What am I trying to do with a wizard? One I want to change the Error message that the current wizards create and have my own created when ever I place a button on a form. Or when I code an VBA event for any enrty box on a form. Also I would like to be able to place the comment field of a table field on a form. Into a help message field on the form when the GotFocus event happens.
    I also have seen some wizards for sale, but I am not sure I could install them. Would love to find a class in New Hampshire, but feel it is not in the cards.
    Hope I have not wasted your time.

    You may find that MZ Tools does some of what you want without you having to write your own wizard.

    It adds a pile of things to the VBA editor , including the capacity to add an error handler with the click of a mouse, and to customise the error message. But it does not change the error messages created by the command button wizard.
