Entering a tick in a cell in Excel

Please can anyone advise if there is a simple way to insert a tick (i.e. meaning correct)in a cell.
I do not mean tick in the sense it is used in charts.

Defies me to find a way, short of finding clip art to download.

Thanks in advance.

Use the font windings - there are a few ticks in that font

You can make one, it's a run command to get to the program. I'm trying to remember ...

Forgot to say - use Character map - select then copy and paste into cell in Excel

But shirley, that would only work if you make the Excel font Windings?

Nope.

And if you could not you could always put the tick in another cell.

You can select a particular font for each cell individually, Monotype Sorts also has ticks. You just need to find which key equates to a tick (I think it is 4 in Monotype Sorts
