many thanks for this vba code, helped greatly.

FYI for people not getting it to work by hitting F5, simply :

developer tab > macros > select the module just created and click options > type a character for the shortcut, such as ctrl+j or ctrl+k.

Thanks for your help with this. It is much appreciated. However please note: THE SPELLING IS WRONG IN THE CODE FOR STEP #2. VBA code: Uncheck or deselect all checked checkboxes (ActiveX Controls):
Sub clearcheckbox()
'Updateby Extendoffcie
Dim c As Object
For Each c In ActiveSheet.OLEObjects
If InStr(1, c.Name, "CheckBox") > 0 Then
c.Object.Value = False
End If
Next
End Sub

PLEASE NOTE THE WORD "Extendoffcie" IS NOT SPELLED CORRECTLY. SHOULDN'T IT BE "Extendoffice"?? Anyway, just wanted to put that out there

What if I wanted to use a button to activate the macro to clear the boxes?
This comment was minimized by the moderator on the site
Hi, Ariel,
To use a button to activate the macro, first, you should insert a button from the Shapes drop down list, and then right click the button, choose Assign Macro from the context menu, and then select the macro name in the Assign Macro dialog box. Then click OK, and the macro code will be linked to the button.
Please try, hope it can help you!

How do i uncheck only the boxes in a specific cell range in the active sheet? I have 3 lists in one sheet (Daily/Weekly/Monthly tasks) and wanted to make a "Clear All" button for each list.

Merci beaucoup d'avoir partagé le code pour décocher des éléments "CheckBox", cela m'a sauvé ! :o)En effet, en codant un formulaire de saisie fait dans une feuille, je cherchais à trouver un moyen de décocher les cases (en guise de réinitialisation du formulaire) et je ne trouvais pas (à part avec la méthode "Select" qui est, comme nous le savons tous, à bannir), tout simplement car :=> la propriété ".CheckBoxes" n'existe pas en propriété d'une "Worksheet" !=> l'Objet "CheckBoxes" ne figure pas non plus dans l'explorateur d'objets !C'est lunaire cette histoire...Alors merci énormément.Bien à vous.

Hello, Siegfried
If you want to check one and disable another one, please apply the below code:
Note: The checkbox here you should use the ActiveX Control checkbox.
Private Sub CheckBox2_Click()
If CheckBox2 = True Then
CheckBox1.Enabled = False
Else
CheckBox1.Enabled = True
End If
End Sub
Private Sub CheckBox1_Click()
If CheckBox1 = True Then
CheckBox2.Enabled = False
Else
CheckBox2.Enabled = True
End If
End Sub

Please have a try, hope it can help you!
