If it is formatted as a Shape, i.e. not Inline, you can use this VBA code
Sub HideCheckBox1()
CheckBox1.Left = -100
End Sub

Open in new window

Another option you could try and use, regardless of of how the checkbox is formatted, is to set the Height and Width property to the lowest accepted value of 0.75
So, try the following code:

Sub HideCheckBox()
     'Change CheckBox1 to the name of the checkbox object
     ThisDocument.CheckBox1.Height = 0.75
     ThisDocument.CheckBox1.Width = 0.75
End Sub

Open in new window
