Default Checkbox in Form / Table

I have a checkbox on a protected form within a complicated table in Word.
When I check the box I want it to box Red and Bold (like conditional
formatting in Excel). Is it possible?

Default Checkbox in Form / Table

You cannot change the colour of the checkbox itself, but the following code
in a macro run on exit from the checkbox formfield will colour the cell in
which the checkbox is located - Red if it is checked and Green if not.

With ActiveDocument
.Unprotect
With Selection
If .FormFields(1).CheckBox.Value = True Then
.Cells(1).Shading.BackgroundPatternColor = wdColorRed
Else
.Cells(1).Shading.BackgroundPatternColor = wdColorGreen
End If
End With
.Protect wdAllowOnlyFormFields, NoReset
End With
