    If you can't replace the blank boxes w/ box w/ check mark, then try to insert a text box w/ check mark. Change the background color to none, resize the box and drag it over the box you want to check. Copy, paste and move checks to other boxes.

    You can't enter [x] manually?

    Hi, The 'Ticked box' symbol is in the 'Wingdings' font, and it's the second from last symbol.
    So in 'Word', it's 'Insert' , 'Symbol', (dropbox) 'More symbols'.
    Then change font to 'Wingdings', then scroll down to the last line, and the 'Ticked box' is second to last one. Lastly, click on 'Insert'.
