What sort of Checkbox are you using? Forms or ActiveX?

Assign this Macro to the Checkbox....

Sub CheckBox1_Click()
    
    Range("A34:H54").EntireRow.Hidden = (ActiveSheet.Shapes("Check Box 1").ControlFormat.Value = 1)
    
End Sub

Open in new window


...where "Check Box 1" is the name of your Checkbox. Note that you can't hide individual cells, only entire rows or columns. If you wanted to hide columns A:H, change EntireRow to EntireColumn.

The follow code can be an alternative solution...

Private Sub CheckBox1_Click()
  If CheckBox1.Value Then
    Hide
  Else
    UnHide
  End If
End Sub
Sub Hide()
    With Range("A34:H54").Font
        .ThemeColor = xlThemeColorDark1
        .TintAndShade = 0
    End With
End Sub
Sub UnHide()
    With Range("A34:H54").Font
        .ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
        .TintAndShade = 0
    End With
End Sub
