I created a bunch of check boxes and put them on an excel sheet. They are just free floating in there, without a userform. Now I want to loop through every single checkbox to uncheck them all. But using something like what's shown below
Code:
    For Each ctl In Me.Controls
     If TypeOf ctl Is MSForms.Checkbox Then
         ' do something
         MsgBox ctl.Caption
     End If
    Next ctl

but I don't know what the parent is...in the above code I have Me...referring to a userform it would typically be in, but obviously that's not the case here. Then I tried sheets(1) but that's not the parent either. Does anybody know how I can access the parent to all these checkboxes?

How to change case of text in Excel?
Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney

Hello there try this:
Replace sheet1 by the name of your worksheet codename


Sub try()
Dim ctl As OLEObject
For Each ctl In Sheet1.OLEObjects
If ctl.ProgId = "Forms.CheckBox.1" Then
ctl.Object.Value = True
End If
Next ctl
Set cltl = Nothing

End Sub
