I wasn't clear in my terminology. I wasn't refering to newbie programmers who 
don't know what a variable and what "int var = 0;" means. I meant to refer to 
programmers who are new in a certain area. Say, it's your first attemp to 
access databases. You know some programming already but you just need to see 
some specific ideas how to access a database. I believe a wizard's output 
could give you some ideas.

I'm not saying there aren't better ways of getting ideas. Google is a good 
friend. I'm just trying to find good points in wizards. I am reaching far 
though ;)
