To Insert an Checkmark

Posted by Nat on February 03, 2000 8:38 AM

In Word, it is possible to type an checkmark by "Insert - Symbol". But with Excel, how do I insert an checkmark if I would like to record if something was done or not?

Please respond!

It can be done in the same way as Word.
Open the Character Map, select and copy the required symbol, then select the worksheet destination cell and paste.

If this was not what you wanted, insertion of a check mark that is dependant upon certain conditions being met could be achieved with a macro.

The Check Box found on the Forms Tool Bar should do the trick.
