Link checkboxes in different files

I have several managers working each on their own file. By checking a checkBox they can tell me the status of their project.
I would like to have one spreadsheet in which I find checkboxes for each file (project). These checkboxes are linked to the checkboxes in the various project-files, showing me an overview of the status of all projects.
Can anyone help me with this?
I prefer the use of checkboxes, as I do not want any of this to be visible on my printout.
Thanks for any help.

Welcome to the Board.

If I've understood you properly, when a checkbox is checked on one wb then you want a checkbox to be checked on another wb?

This will work - change the references etc to suit - based on a method provided by Aladin.

Private Sub CheckBox1_Click()
If [A5] = True Then Workbooks("Book1").Worksheets("sheet1").Range("B5").Value = True
End Sub

Where A5 is the cell containing the first checkbox. (No doubt there is a shorter way to do this).

Does this help?

Regards
