I have a great little WB here that Ragonzo helped me with originally building.  

Here are the two enhancements I need:

 1.) If I want the "confidential" text to show up on Sheets 2 and 3, but want it to show up and disappear (depending on the status of the checkmark -- on/off) how do I distinguish between the cells?  Right now, it shows up at the same sell on each Sheet.

 2.) If I want to simply say "all sheets" so as not to have to identify each individual sheet, what line of code would I use to substitute where it tells which sheets to place the text?


Thank you in advance.

Try the below macro instead. To specify the cell for Sheet2 and Sheet3, modify the address in lines 19 and 21. The macro will also populate the specified cell in lines 22-23 for every worksheet, except for Sheet1.

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)

    Application.EnableEvents = False
    
    Dim ws As Worksheet, CellValue As String
    
    If Target.Value = "P" Then
        CellValue = ""
        Target.Value = ""
    Else
        CellValue = "Confidential"
        Target.Value = "P"
    End If
    
    For Each ws In Worksheets
        If ws.Name <> Me.Name Then
            Select Case ws.Name
                Case "Sheet2"
                    ws.Range("C5").Value = CellValue
                Case "Sheet3"
                    ws.Range("D6").Value = CellValue
                Case Else
                    ws.Range("C5").Value = CellValue
            End Select
        End If
    Next
    
    Cancel = True
    
    Application.EnableEvents = True
    
End Sub
