CheckBox Control is used to specify or indicate binary choice. That is either Turn on or off a value. When we use more checkboxs, you can select more than one CheckBox at a time on the Worksheet. You can select multiple check boxes in a group box. Please find more details about ActiveX CheckBox Control in the following chapter.

    Hello, Thank you for the tutorial. I am new to VBA and have a question on how to code the checkboxes I’m working on. I have sheet 1 with checkboxes on it and on sheet 2 I have a list of sentences in different cells. what I want to happen is when a checkbox is checked on sheet 1 I want it to take a specific sentence from sheet 2 and put it in a “Notes” box on sheet 1. That way I can compile notes with a couple checks of some checkboxes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
