    I'm working in Excel 2003 and trying to create an electronic form. I've added a checkbox but instead of just seeing the tag associated with the box ("Yes, I'll attend"), I'm also getting "True" or "False" depending on whether the box is checked or not. I cannot figure out how to get rid of this! Thanks for any help.

    Welcome to the Lounge!

    It's possible to link a check box to a cell on your worksheet. This cell will display TRUE if the check box is ticked and FALSE if it is cleared.
    To avoid this, don't link the check box to a cell.

    For a check box from the Forms toolbar:
    - Right-click the check box.
    - Select Format Control... from the popup menu.
    - Clear the Link to Cell box.
    - Click OK.

    For a check box from the Control Toolbox toolbar:
    - Activate Design mode (first button on the Control Toolbox).
    - Select the check box.
    - Click the Properties button on the Control Toolbox.
    - Clear the Linked Cell property.
    - Turn off Design mode.
