    check checkbox value by position

    Good Morning folks I am looking for a way to check if a position that I can aquire by code (e.g .Cells(x,y)) contains a checkbox and what value (e.g 0 or 1) that checkbox has.
    The reason for this is that I want to automatically create an overview about data in different sheets, ordered by the content of a certain cell as well as by the state of several checkboxes each row.
    The following code is what I came up with concerning the testing of the cell content. Now the row of each cell checked this way also contains a checkbox at .Cells(ICountRow, 2) .Cells(ICountRow, 5) and .Cells(ICountRow, 6). But I don not how how to acces the value of the checkbox therein. The checkboxes used by me are from the Forms toolbar.

    Re: check checkbox value by position

    this is not an answer to your question, but I would suggest you use marlett checkbox instead. Then you could just check if the cell value contains letter 'x' to see if it's checked or not, thus have more order in your form.

    see this thread for an example of how it's used and how it works.

    Well the work is partially done and I am very content with it so far.

    It fills all my lines with nice little squares or hooks, depending on their state and always indicating their position.
    However for the boxes in the columns H, I and J I was looking to implement something to make sure that at all times only one of them is checked. Originally I had some working code for my checkboxes that relied on the following:

    That would rely on the Application.Caller to find out where it had to do its work, now that this is not valid any longer I tried to implement something along the lines of:

    The only remaining question is, how do I make sure that this code is executed each time one of my cells changes its status?

    Re: check checkbox value by position

    If I get it correctely your code would delete all content of the three collumns and then just write one hook into the cell I just clicked, but what I want is to only overwrite the two corresponding cells with "z".
    Basically changing from:
    column 1|column 2|column 3
    ______|___x___|___ ___
    ______|___x___|___ ___
    ______|___x___|___ ___
    to:
    column 1|column 2|column 3
    ______|___x___|___ ___
    ______|___x___|___ ___
    ___x___|______|___ ___
    with one click at (2,1)

    Re: check checkbox value by position

    So there should only be one tick in each row?

    Correct, one tick each row, at lest between H, I and J while B can be whatever it wants to be
