    Default check box & deleting

    I have some check boxes on my spreadsheet and want to delete them. I cannot seem to get them "selected" to delete? I try to right click, etc.

    your help is appreciated...

    Is your sheet protected?

    I usually just right click on the checkbox, press escape to get rid of the menu, then hit the delete key. Seems to work fine for me.

    As far as I know, if the checkbox is selected, you should just be able to press 'delete' and get rid of it unless the sheet is protected.

    Are you running any macros or anything that would turn off your right-click menus?

    I can right click in other areas and menus do pop up, also the sheet is not protected...

    thanks, Mark
