Description

WIZ files are used to create wizards for Microsoft programs, such as Word and Publisher. They may contain document templates, user interface objects, macros, and other saved data. The goal of the wizard is to serve as a guide for creating a new document or completing a series of tasks.

Important: You can create a WIZ file in Microsoft Word from a document template. First, open the template (.DOT) file, then modify the document and add custom macros if needed. Finally, save the file and change the ".dot" file extension to ".wiz."
