I had the same problem with Microsoft Access Wizards in my Office XP Professional. I re-installed Office and/or Access several times. I deleted alle registry entries for Access. I followed a Microsoft Knowledge Base arcticle for Office 2000 (Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 242218). I opened new empty data bases. I spent days on all of this, but it did NOT help.

I resolved the problem by enabling the Office Wizard / Assistant (I think its called Clippy or so) in the help menu (you know, this extremely annoying/disturbing animated thing that continually forces tipps on you and makes the help function hard to use by its interactive blabla).

All Access wizards work fine with Clippy enabled.

Hi, am11
   I also have the same problem, I am runing access 2000 and I just can not get the wizards to even start. I funny thing is I have this same program on my office computer and everything works fine. All the wizards run, but when I loaded it on my home computer so that I could do some of my work here at home everything but the wizards work. I checked to make sure that I had files acwzmain.mde and acwztool.mde since MS said that if these are missing the wizards will not work. If you have sloved the problem please let me know.
Thanks

Thank You!!
After installing, reinstalling....The *&^ toggle on the toolbar was turned off. (I've been doing Access/VB for years and never knew this was a toggle)!!

I'm having a similar problem. When I try to run either a Form Wizard, or a Report Wizard, The tables and queries i've created appear in the drop down box, but when I highlight the desired table the available fields window remains blank/empty. I'm running Access 2003 /XP-Pro+SP2 /Office 2003 + SP1.

I had the same problem with Windows XP pro sp2 and Access 2003.
I had to go to the tools menu select macro -- security. Then I set security to low and restarted access and all wizards worked.
Hope this helps !!!

i had the same problem as most people, wizards dont work, thanks to lev323 though they work, so if anyone has this problem the first thing to try would be the macro security, it was the only thing that did the trick for me.

I have Access 2000 9.06926 SP-3. I also cannot access my wizards. This occurred after I had to do a system restore on my computer. After I reinstalled Office Professional 2000, everything else seems to work, except the Access wizards. Another thing I notice is that each time I open a database, a box comes up "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft 2000 Professional." This never happened before, and none of the other Office programs do this when activated. I have installed and reinstalled several times. I even used a different copy of the program and still have the same results. I've poured over the Microsoft Knowledge base and still have not found a solution. I really like using the wizards, they cut out a lot of work, especially in reports. I have Access 2003 at work and use the database there, and then come home and use it with Access 2000. I don't know if that can be a contributing problem or not. A computer program expert friend of mine, says probably not, so I'm really puzzled. Can anyone help? Thanks.

We have been fighting this issue for a couple of days now ourselves. I have installed Access on many computers and this the first time I have seen the wizard act this way. The tables you want to select has blank information in the available fields as others have described. We tried everything mentioned in the replies on this post and not being an Access programmer I was hoping for some help and further explanation of the toggle switch in Access or other ideas to resolve this issue. Thanks for your help!
