    1. If you select a range of cells in columns A:F, the Tab key will behave the way you want. If you want to make it behave that way always, you can do it like this:
    - Select the cells in columns A:F that you want to use.
    - Select Format | Cells...
    - Activate the Protection tab.
    - Clear the "Locked" check box.
    - Click OK.
    - Select Tools | Protection | Protect Sheet...
    - Click OK.

    2. If you mean a check box:
    - Display the Forms toolbar.
    - Click the check box button.
    - Drag a rectangle on the worksheet.
    - Right click the check box and select 'Format Control...'
    - Activate the Control tab.
    - Enter or point to a cell in the 'Cell link' box.
    - Click OK.

    3. Try a formula like this, where A5 is the Cell link from above:


    This will result in a blank if A5 is FALSE. If you would like a 0, use

    Tick cell on enter

    The formula that can be used with this example is: Assume the tick mark is in the B the C column you can type:
