Most spreadsheet controls need to link to a cell to enable interaction with the spreadsheet. There is an easy way to do that.
Here is a technique that allows you to turn off and turn on the conditional format without actually removing the conditional format. You may want to do this to print a sheet without the conditional formats being applied.
When you create a checkbox you need to link it to a cell on a sheet to be able to use its result. The user could overwrite that linked cell with a value or text and affect formulas that are using the checkbox linked cell. You can add a validation to make sure the linked cell only contains TRUE or FALSE.
If you want to place graphic objects on your sheet eg logos and checkboxes, but not have them print out, you need to change their properties.
Excel is great with numbers but what about sentences? Check out this example of how you can create a paragraph builder. The user ticks boxes to select sentences to include in a paragraph.
Check boxes make selections easy. Excel has a number of useful controls that can be added to sheets to improve the user interface. These include check boxes (tick boxes), option buttons and spinner controls.
