Auto-center checkbox in cell with VBA code


To automatically center all checkboxes in cells in a current worksheet, please do as follows.

1. In the worksheet, you need to auto-center all checkboxes, press the Alt + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. In the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, please click Insert > Module. Then copy and paste VBA code into the code window.

VBA code: Automatically center all checkboxes in cells

Sub CenterCheckbox ()
    Dim xRg As Range
    Dim chkBox As OLEObject
    Dim chkFBox As CheckBox
    On Error Resume Next
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    For Each chkBox In ActiveSheet.OLEObjects
        If TypeName(chkBox.Object) = "CheckBox" Then
            Set xRg = chkBox.TopLeftCell
            chkBox.Width = xRg.Width * 2 / 3
            chkBox.Height = xRg.Height
            chkBox.Left = xRg.Left + (xRg.Width - chkBox.Width) / 2
            chkBox.Top = xRg.Top + (xRg.Height - chkBox.Height) / 2
        End If
    Next
    For Each chkFBox In ActiveSheet.CheckBoxes
        Set xRg = chkFBox.TopLeftCell
        chkFBox.Width = xRg.Width * 2 / 3
        chkFBox.Height = xRg.Height
        chkFBox.Left = xRg.Left + (xRg.Width - chkFBox.Width) / 2
        chkFBox.Top = xRg.Top + (xRg.Height - chkFBox.Height) / 2
    Next
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

3. Press the F5 key. Then all checkboxes are moved into the center of the cells immediately as below screenshot shown.
