Grouping Checkboxes in Excel

Grouping checkboxes will help to keep the checkbox values discrete. We may also need to group the checkboxes in order to move or resize them as per requirement. Grouping helps to take control on all checkboxes at a time.


Grouping checkboxes in Excel:

After inserting checkboxes onto the worksheet. Select all check boxes as shown in the image below.

Make sure that the controls are well aligned to each other. Checkboxes  must not be overlapped on each other.

Similarly we can Un-group and Regroup the checkboxes.
