Excel -- checkboxes


Please find attached a sample spreadsheet that utilizes "check boxes" (with their controls linked to associated cells).

I need to find another way that allows me to use checkboxes; however, I don't want to manually update the controls/links for hundreds of checkboxes.

Do you know of another way to mimic this process?   Again, please find attached XLS for more details on the problem/requirement.

What do you want to "manually update" and would a macro solution be OK?


I'd like to copy/paste row 1 and update, e.g., rows 2 through 300 with checkboxes which have individual controls (vs. all of them linked to the same cell).
