Whats the code to change the display text on a checkbox?

Here's part of it
Is it caption?

Set MyCheckBox = MySheet.OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:="Forms.CheckBox.1")
With MyCheckBox
.Left = 44
.Top = 110
.Width = 70
.Height = 16
End With

Yes - I've tried it but it doesn't work.
says something like object doesn't support that property.

For a checkbox from the "Forms Toolbar" instead the "Control Toolbox Toolbar" :-

With ActiveSheet
MyCheckBox = .CheckBoxes.Add(44, 110, 70, 16)
.CheckBoxes(.CheckBoxes.Count).Text = "New Caption"
End With
