The following VBA code can help you add check mark in a cell with double clicking. Please do as follows.

1. Open the worksheet you need to add check mark into the cell, then right click and select View Code from the right-clicking menu.

2. In the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, copy and paste the below VBA code into the Code window.

VBA code: Double click to add check mark in a cell

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
    If Not Intersect(Target, Range("B1:B10")) Is Nothing Then
        Application.EnableEvents = False
        If ActiveCell.Value = ChrW(&H2713) Then
            ActiveCell.ClearContents
        Else
            ActiveCell.Value = ChrW(&H2713)
        End If
        Cancel = True
    End If
    Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

Note: In the code, B1:B10 is the range you will add check mark with double clicking. Please change it based on your need.

3. Press the Alt + Q keys to close the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window and return to the worksheet.

Now, double click on any cell in range B1:B10, the check mark will be entered automatically. And double clicking the cell again, the inserted check mark will be removed.

    como eu faço pra inserir a marca de seleção na célula, porém sem deletar o número que estiver digitado nela ou seja, a marca sairia na frente do número quando eu der duplo clique... e quando eu quizer apagar a marca, eu dou duplo clique novamente e a célula voltaria ao normar (continuaria apenas o número).

      If Not Intersect(Target, Union(Range("A2:A10"), Range("D2:D5"))) Is Nothing Then
      Application.EnableEvents = False
      If Left(ActiveCell.Value, 1) = ChrW(&H2713) Then
      ActiveCell.Value = Right(ActiveCell, Len(ActiveCell) - 1)
      ActiveCell.HorizontalAlignment = xlRight
      Else
      ActiveCell.Value = ChrW(&H2713) & ActiveCell.Value
