Can anyone help me write a macro that changes a normal symbol box □, into a tick box?

Basically what I want to happen is, when a user double-clicks on the symbol box is turns into a tick box - with a tick in it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

See if this helps:

Sub CheckIt()

ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate.AutoTextEntries("Checked Box").Insert Where:=Selection.Range

End Sub

Sub UncheckIt()

ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate.AutoTextEntries("Unchecked Box").Insert Where:=Selection.Range

End Sub
