Problem: I have to show checkmarks in a list. How do I create a checkmark in Excel?
Strategy: Use a capital letter P and convert the font to Wingdings 2. There are actually a series of letters with checkmarks and x's. in the P to V range.
- Convert to Wingdings 2 to access these symbols.
Once you have a range formatted with Wingdings 2, you would type a P to type a checkmark or type an O for the x.
Gotcha: if you start getting circled 7's instead, it is because you are typing a lower case p instead of a capital P.
