Default Enable check box in protected sheet + group check boxes

Hi Folks!

I have a sheet within which are all the Counties in the UK. To protect the
data from being altered, I usually unlock cells and protect sheet. I cannot
find a way to enable check boxes once the sheet is protected...!!!!!! This
seems rudimentary, so I MUST be missing something.

I want a user to be able to:

1/ tick or clear a check box to indicate whether he delivers to a certain
County whilst the sheet is protected.

2/ tick or clear a single check box to operate several others; in other
words, if a user selects ENGLAND, all the english counties are automatically
selected.

Any assistance that can be provided will be most appreciated - thank you
very much, in anticipation.

Kind regards,

Dexxterr

Make sure that the linked cell is unlocked, too.

(Or move them to a different sheet (hidden???))

Dave

Thank you for that - of course; how silly of me not to realize.

Any ideas on grouping check boxes to be controlled by just one?

Thank you for your assistance, regards,

Dx.

If I want to allow for just one item selected from a group, I don't use
checkboxes. I use optionbuttons.

If you use optionbuttons from the Forms Toolbar, then place each group in the
same Groupbox.

If you use optionbuttons from the Control toolbox toolbar, you can change the
Groupname property for each optionbutton in that group (make it the same for
each group).
