    I have an annoying issue with Excel 2010

    Have the following fields in Excel.
    Week Num / Heads / Hours Worked / Total Hours Worked / 8 Hrs Worked Friday / 8 Hrs Worked Saturday

    Worked Friday & Worked Saturday are checkboxes
    I have first 3 rows manually configured to link checkbox to the cell its in.

    Copy and pasting these checkboxes to the rest of the cells.
    All checkboxes are still linked to the original cell. I removed the $ symbol in checkbox properties.
    When I check Box at row 1, rows 1,4,7,11 ect.. get checked.

    I'm wondering if anyone knows a faster way to update these checkboxes.
    Or am I forced to update each checkbox manually.

    I found very little about checkboxes in Excel on Google Search.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think you'll have to do it with a macro.
    Do you have a sample file (attach it) with the checkboxes so I can take alook?
