Hi! I've been working on a large excel file for my workplace.

I added some form control checkboxes to one of the sheets to indicate whether a task was completed. The checkbox works just fine within the sheet. I don't have it linked to any specific cell because we just want the check indicated, we don't need a true or false to be indicated.

The problem is that when we run the macro to attach the excel to attach it to an outlook email, the checkboxes do not appear in the preview, which is what most people refer to.
Any idea if this is a macro problem or how I can fix it? If the question doesn't make sense, please let me know. Due to the information on the sheet being proprietary, I can't attach it to the post.
Thank you!

Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.

Are we talking about UserForm CheckBox or ActiveX CheckBox?

Userform Checkbox!
I think I misunderstood your problem. Are you saying that UserForm CheckBox of an Excel file is not shown (or missing) when previewed on Outlook? If so, I have no idea.
