How to add multiple checkboxes using VBA in Excel 2010

Hi,

I am creating a checklist for my team, which includes tasks which are to be performed daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly based on the task.

Initially I created a checklist in which I inserted the check boxes and linked each of them to different cells. But I found that job to be tiring as every month tasks change as per the day.

Kindly let me know how this can be achieved using VBA. Attached is a screenshot of what I created manually.

Would appreciate if a link is provided where an example is there to achieve the above.

I hope you understand what I m trying to explain. Please let me know if any input is required.

Thanks in advance.

Sub InsertCheckboxes()

    Dim myBox As CheckBox
    Dim myCell As Range

    Dim cellRange As String
    Dim cboxLabel As String
    Dim linkedColumn As String
     
    ' Enter range to insert check boxes in i.e. A5:A20
    cellRange = InputBox(Prompt:="Cell Range", Title:="Cell Range")
    ' Enter bound column letter
    linkedColumn = InputBox(Prompt:="Linked Column", Title:="Linked Column")
    ' Enter combobox caption, "" for no caption
    cboxLabel = InputBox(Prompt:="Checkbox Label", Title:="Checkbox Label")

    With ActiveSheet
        For Each myCell In .Range(cellRange).Cells
            With myCell
                Set myBox = .Parent.CheckBoxes.Add(Top:=.Top, Width:=.Width, Left:=.Left, Height:=.Height)

                With myBox
                    .LinkedCell = linkedColumn & myCell.Row
                    .Caption = cboxLabel
                    .Name = "checkbox_" & myCell.Address(0, 0)
                End With

                .NumberFormat = ";;;"
            End With

        Next myCell
    End With
End Sub
