I'm using Crystal Reports 2016 and want to ask if there is a way to add a Checkbox function in Crystal reports. i.e. when the report is run for example to have a 'Yes' and 'No' checkbox. The user viewing the report checks either button and at the end of the report I want to count the 'Yes' checkmarks.

AFAIK, can't be done just with Crystal.  Two alternatives are:
a) use a Crystal viewer application and a UFL
or
b) automate the conversion of the report to a PDF form.

Thanks Ido, could you share a little more info please. I found an article that mentions another way also using VB and Crystal reports but I'm curios  about some details you may be able to add.

That article doesn't address your question because it only deals with the display of a checkbox. Your use case involves reacting to a user-click after the report is displayed.
Again, afaik, there are only 2 possible ways to address such a use case.  There are 3rd-party tools that can automate the export and conversion of a Crystal report to a PDF with form fields. There are also 3rd-party viewers that can react to user clicks. You can search for those tools  here: http://kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html .  Or, you can try to develop that type of functionality on your own.
