EE Pros,

I need a macro that looks at a matrix of cells (columns G - T and below Row 4....could be set up as a rangename) and when a cell is "doubleclicked" a checkmark (Wingding2 with "P") will automatically appear in the cell.

Thank you in advance!

Option Explicit

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
'Provides check button
    If Not Intersect(Range("G5:T1048576"), Target) Is Nothing Then
        Application.ScreenUpdating = False
        With ActiveCell
            If .Value = "P" Then
                .Value = ""
            Else
                .Font.Name = "Wingdings 2"
                .Value = "P"
            End If
        End With
        'These two lines below make it a realtime update
        Cancel = True
        Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    End If
End Sub

Something like this?

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)

If Target.Column > 6 And Target.Column < 21 And Target.Row > 2 Then

With ActiveCell
    If .Value = "P" Then
    .Value = ""
    Else
    .Font.Name = "Wingdings 2"
    .Value = "P"
   End If
End With
'These two lines below make it a realtime update vs. using a button and the sub "sumup"
Cancel = True
'sumup
End If
End Sub

Thanks guys!  Both solutions worked!  Appreciate the help.  

One quick question; instead of using a hard coded table range, would I be better off using a Range name so that if columns are added, it wouldn't break the Macro?

Yes.
Change:
If Not Intersect(Range("G5:T1048576"), Target) Is Nothing Then
