Can I have an ifstatement or other formula that will only work if the checkbox is ticked?


I want it so that you can only add values to another box (eg a1) if the check box it ticked, is this possible and if so how do you do it?

I haven't really tried this in EXCEL but I believe you could use an if statement like this:

If CheckBox1.Value = True Then

And then use the following code to lock the cells:

Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("B2:C3").Locked = True
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
