This forum might not be the place because it is for IT professionals, however:
In Access I put command buttons to help me complete function like open forms. Sometimes the wizard opens to help me, but sometimes it does not. Can any7 body tell me why?

Often I want to add a list to a form so the field I choose in the list sets the correct record on the form, Again sometimes this uses a wizard to help me and sometimes it does not. Why?

There is a toggle button on the palette that indicates whether the wizard will be invoked.  Look for the wand and sparkles icon.
