How Do You Put a Tick in a Cell in Excel?

Anyone know how to put a tick in a cell in Excel.

A simple manual entry is all that is required. I am currently using the insert/symbol and selecting the square root sign which is the nearest thing I can find to a simple tick.

Is there a better way and something that looks closer? I would have thought that this should be a keyboard symbol.

View > Toolbars > Forms and insert a CheckBox. Click it to tick/untick it.

There's a tick in Wingdings that you should be able to use with insert character.

says Wingdings, he's nearly right...

the font is "Webdings", and it's the letter "a", (lower case)

No he's exactly right, Wingdings character code OxFC is a tick

I didn't know it was there... but webdings "a" is easier!

How does one enter using the character code?

It's much easier to enter a CheckBox. This is what MS intended and it can be acted on with simple formulas or code. How do you query a cell that contains a tick otherwise?

If you don't need to query a cell, you can actually draw one using the Drawing Toolbar, then use copy+paste to replicate it. It's what I do anyway - click here. G
