How would I extract a specific range of cells from another sheet to the current one depending on the selection of a checkbox?

Hello!

For example, I have checkbox1, checkbox2 and checkbox3. If I select 1 and 2, then only a specific range say A1:B20 from another sheet is extracted into the current one. There doesn't need to be an else condition (no need to check if the checkboxes have been unchecked in my case).

Any help is greatly appreciated!

VBA Code:
Sub CopyRows()

For Each chkbx In ActiveSheet.CheckBoxes
    If chkbx.Value = 1 Then
        For r = 1 To Rows.Count
            If Cells(r, 1).Top = chkbx.Top Then
                With Worksheets("Sheet2")
                    LRow = .Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1
                    .Range("A" & LRow & ":D" & LRow) = _
                    Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A" & r & ":D" & r).Value
                End With
                Exit For
            End If
        Next r
    End If
Next

End Sub

you can understand how to edit the code to fit your purposes.

Would this work with ActiveX checkboxes as well?

For ActiveX you'll need to be looking into OLEObjects.Add("Forms.checkbox.1").

Keep in mind that ActiveX controls are notorious for creating issues due to them being "unstable" shall we say ?
They tend to fail erratically and it has nothing to do with your coding skills. Best to stick with Form Controls.

I wish i'd known this before creating hundreds and hundreds of ActiveX controls.
