Suggested October 2023 How To Highlight Cell Or Row With Checkbox In Excel

Microsoft Excel is an application used by many around the world, especially for data analysis, due to the mathematical and statistical features it offers. In this tutorial, we will explain how to highlight a cell or row with a check box in Excel.

How to highlight Cell or Row with Checkbox in Excel

To highlight a cell or row in Excel, we will be using Conditional Formatting. The Conditional Formatting feature easily spots, trends and patterns in your data using bars, colors, and Icons to visually highlight important values. Follow the steps below on how to highlight a cell or row with a check box in Excel:

Launch Excel, then enter data.

Select a cell.

Draw the check box into the selected cell.

In the cell link box, type the cell where you want to link to the check box.

Highlight the cell where you want to add the conditional formatting to when the check box is selected.

In the Select a rule type list, select ‘Use a formula to determine which cells to format.’

In the ‘Format value where this formula is true’ box, type the cell where you have linked the checkbox to and add TRUE, for example: = IF (\$E3=TRUE,TRUE,FALSE)

Launch Excel.

Now we are going to insert the check boxes.

Select a cell.

Now draw the check box into the selected cell.

Now delete the text.

A Format Control dialog box will open.

Now we are going to add the conditional formatting to the cell.

Highlight the cell where you want to add the conditional formatting when the check box is selected, for instance, in the photo, we have highlighted a row containing Staff.

A New Formatting Rule dialog box will open.

In the Select a rule type list, select ‘Use a formula to determine which cells to format.’

In the ‘Format value where this formula is true’ box, type the cell where you have linked the check box, and add TRUE, for example, = IF (\$E3=TRUE,TRUE,FALSE).

Now we want to select a color.

Follow the same method for the other cells that you want to highlight, with that color, for instance, in the photo above, highlight all the rows containing Staff.

In this tutorial, we want the rows containing ‘Volunteer’ to have a different color.

Highlight the row where you want to add the conditional formatting when the check box is selected, for instance, in the photo, we have highlighted a row containing ‘Volunteer.’

A New Formatting Rule dialog box will open.

In the Select a rule type list, select ‘Use a formula to determine which cells to format.’

In the ‘Format value where this formula is true’ box, type the cell where you have linked the checkbox and add TRUE,  for example, = IF (\$E4=TRUE,TRUE,FALSE).

Now we want to select a color.

Do the same steps for the rows you want to highlight.

In this tutorial, you will notice that when the check box for Staff is selected, the row containing ‘Staff’ is highlighted in pink, and when the check box for ‘Volunteer’ is checked, the color of the row containing ‘Volunteer’ will turn blue.

How do I change the appearance of a checkbox in Excel?

A Format Control dialog box will open.

You can also change the lines and the style of the check box.

The appearance of the check box will change.
