I have the current vb which works great.
Code:
'------------------------------------------------------
'- WORKSHEET CHECKBOX ALTERNATIVE
'- ADDS OR REMOVES TICK IN A CELL. Font = Wingdings.
'------------------------------------------------------
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Excel.Range, _
        Cancel As Boolean)
    Dim MyTick As String
    Dim MyUnTick As String
    MyTick = Chr(254)
    MyUnTick = Chr(111)
    TopRow = 4
    BottomRow = 65536
    '-
    If (ActiveCell.Column = 5 Or (ActiveCell.Column > 6 And ActiveCell.Column < 13) Or (ActiveCell.Column > 17 And ActiveCell.Column < 38) Or ActiveCell.Column = 39 Or ActiveCell.Column = 41 Or ActiveCell.Column = 43 Or ActiveCell.Column = 45 Or (ActiveCell.Column > 46 And ActiveCell.Column < 51)) _
        And ActiveCell.Row >= TopRow _
        And ActiveCell.Row <= BottomRow Then
        If ActiveCell = MyUnTick Then
            ActiveCell.Font.Name = "Wingdings"
            ActiveCell.Font.Size = 12
            ActiveCell.Font.ColorIndex = 3
            ActiveCell.Value = MyTick
        Else
            ActiveCell.Font.Name = "Wingdings"
            ActiveCell.Font.Size = 12
            ActiveCell.Font.ColorIndex = 1
            ActiveCell.Value = MyUnTick
       End If
        ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
    Else
    End If
End Sub
'-------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to change this, so that instead of naming the columns to be used in VB, I would like it to look at Row 1 and if it is equal to 1 then use this script.
ie in Row1 Column 5 i have a "1" value in the cell, then all cells in column 5 use the tick box vb.
I believe i could use an intersect command, but i am not sure on how to do it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi

Please try

If Cells(1, ActiveCell.Column)=1

Hope this helps

P. S. I prefer to use Target. It keeps more focused on the event.
