Join Dennis Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Using check boxes and Conditional Formatting together for dynamic displays, part of Excel Tips Weekly.
- If you're seeing this worksheet for the first time…your eye is probably drawn over to column M…where we see what are called check boxes,…as well as some colored panels.…I'm going to check the box for Contract.…And you can see what's happening in the data…over in columns A through J,…every time we see the word Contract…in column D, all that row is highlighted.…If I do the same for Hourly, the Hourly box,…we see those highlighted.…This is similar to a filter, except it's not hiding data,…it's simply highlighting the data.…
So these check boxes are associated…with Conditional Formatting.…As I uncheck the box for Contract,…we can see what's happening.…So it's quickly obvious what is being done…with these boxes and how they're being set up.…But let's explore a little bit,…I'll scroll to the right,…and uncheck a couple of the boxes.…I'm gonna make column M wider.…And we see these words, True, False, False.…Look what happens when I check…the box for Contract.…
Second of those entries became True.…I'll uncheck the box for Full TIme and Half-Time,…
