Linking Macros

I have a rather difficult macro question. I have put together an electronic quiz that includes macros so that you can "check" the appropriate box. The numbers beside the boxes are listed 1 - 5. I would like to be able to add a formula into my worksheet that will count the 1's, 2's, etc. and give a total at the bottom of my worksheet. Is this possible, and if so, how do I do it? I seems to me that I need to be able to link my macro into the number somehow so that when the corresponding number and box are checked it recognizes the answer. Thanks in advance for your expert knowledge!

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

you need to look at the CheckBox.Checked property but this is not my strength! This should bump your message back up though.

Run a search on CheckBoxes on this site and you may well come up with your answer. The difficulty I imagine is getting it to recognize your checkbox position (out of the 5) and referencing it.

e.g
If CheckBox(1).Checked Then TOT = 1
If CheckBox(2).Checked Then TOT = 2

and so on with TOT being your running total.

The other way is link your checkbox (under properties) to a cell - this way you can run the following ifs:

If Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1")= "TRUE" Then TOT = 1
If Sheets("Sheet1").Range("B1")= "TRUE" Then TOT = 2

and so on...

where you're substituting a test on the checkbox with a test on the linked cell of the checkbox - where TRUE will appear if checkbox is clicked.

Hope this helps a little...
