I have a checkbox that when checked I need cells A10:H13 to be visible, and when the checkbox is not checked I need A10:H13 to be hidden.

By hidden do you mean

entire rows hidden
entire columns hidden
entire rows and columns hidden
or just the text hidden with the cells visible?

3 specific rows, or will the row numbers change depending on the content in the spreadsheet?

You can use this macro as shown in the attached file

Private Sub CheckBox1_Change()
    If CheckBox1 Then
        Range("A10:H13").EntireRow.Hidden = True
    Else
        Range("A10:H13").EntireRow.Hidden = False
    End If
End Sub

Does it have to a check box? You can do this without VBA.

Select the three rows and go to the Data Menu and choose Group > Rows.

This will put a button in the left hand margin, next to either row 9 or 14 depending on settings, and will enable the hiding or unhiding of those rows. When hidden the button will show a + sign, when unhidden the button will show a - sign and the rows affected will have a little bullet next to them.

Thanks
