Check Boxes

EE Pros,

I had an EE Pro build out a small macro that when you double clicked, it put a check in a box.

I've now tried to adapt it to a "row" instead of a column and cannot get it to work right.  I think it may have something to do with the "offsets".   I would appreciate some help in getting this to work correctly.

Thank you in advance,

B.

Not sure exactly how you want it adapted.

In any case the first parameter of Offset is the RowOffset and the second one is the ColumnOffset.

I assume you want something like this:
    With ActiveCell
        If .Value = "P" Then
            .Value = ""
            .Offset(4, 0).ClearContents
        ElseIf .Offset(1, 0).Value <> "" Then
            .Font.Name = "Wingdings 2"
            .Value = "P"
            .Offset(4, 0).FormulaR1C1 = ""            '"=Value"    'Value is not a defined name
        End If
    End With

MacroShadow,

I changed the code to match what you sent me but it still doesn't work.

Just to be clear, when you open the sample WB/WS, and you double click on cells in Row 15, it automatically should put a "checkmark" in the box (which is capital "P" and Wingdings2).

That's what I'm trying to get working......

Esskay,

I tried this code and unfortunately it doesn't work.  

Can you open my workbook and see what I'm trying to accomplish?  If you double click on the cells in row 15, it should automatically place a "P" that then converts to a check mark.
