Do you mean a userform or a form on a worksheet?

For a userform you could use something like this.
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim chk As MSForms.Checkbox
Dim lngTop As Long

    lngTop = 5

    For I = 1 To 35
        Set chk = Me.Controls.Add("Forms.CheckBox.1, "CheckBox" & I)
        chk.Top = lngTop
        lngTop = lngTop+chk.Height+5
    Next I

End Sub

Open in new window

That puts all the checkboxes in one column which might not be suitable but the code can be refined to place them in some other configuration.

Similar code can be created if the form is on a sheet.

By the way, you could use a listbox with MultiSelect set to fmMultiSelectMulti and ListStyle set to fmListStyleOption.

That would show a chekcbox next to each item in the listbox.

I take it you figured out the listbox?

If you didn't here's a simple example that populates a listbox from A2:A35 on Sheet1 and sets it up to display checkboxes.
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()

    With Me.ListBox1
        .List = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A2:A35").Value
        .ListStyle = fmListStyleOption
        .MultiSelect = fmMultiSelectMulti
    End With

End Sub
