If there are lots of checkboxes need to be selected at once, select them one by one will be tedious and time-consuming. Here, I can introduce you to select all checkboxes using a single checkbox, that is to say, when you check this master checkbox, all of the checkboxes of current worksheet will selected immediately.

Ниже код для установки определённых флажков с помощью одного основного флажка.

Sub Level1()
If Range("B23") = True Then Range("G29,G30,G39,G40,G41,G42,G43,I31,I32,I33,I34,I35,I36,I37,I38") = True
If Range("B23") = False Then Range("G29,G30,G39,G40,G41,G42,G43,I31,I32,I33,I34,I35,I36,I37,I38") = False
End Sub

, где
Level1 - имя макроса

B23 - номер ячейки в которой находится основной чек-бокс для флажка

G29,G30,G39,G40,G41,G42,G43,I31,I32,I33,I34,I35,I36,I37,I38 - диапазон ячеек, в которых содержатся чек-боксы для проставления флажков.

P.S. Не забывайте привязать чек-боксы к своим ячейкам и назначить макрос на основном чек-боксе.

Всем удачи!
