I am trying to find how to insert a TICk mark into an excel sheet.

Any thoughts please

Originally I tried copy/paste from Word which only seemed to work intermittently. Better plan is to put in a capital "P" and then format the cell(s) in Wingdings 2 font. This will give you a "tick in the box", to coin a phrase!

Top man,

I shall put a capital P and format in wingdings 2 in the resolved box.

Long winded but......I've just tried this and inserted a tick as a picture. In MS Word or similar, start a document, insert your tick (from Insert > Symbol), then copy the symbol and paste it into Excel. The first time I tried it the picture spanned a number of cells but by dragging the handles I managed to reduce it to a single cell. Once you have got the size right it shouls simply be a case of copying and pasting.

Hope this helps.

Well done Accord...much simpler than my suggestion!

Format the cell before putting in P.
