To insert a check box form field in Word 2007, in a table or anywhere else
the cursor happens to be*:

- If the Developer tab doesn't appear on the ribbon, go to Office button
Word Options Popular and check the box to enable it.

- Click the Developer tab on the ribbon.

- In the Controls group, click the Legacy Tools button (the fourth one in
the bottom row).

- Click the check box in the first row of the dropdown.

*You can't insert a form field in a header, footer, text box, or AutoShape.

The check box, like all form fields, needs to have the document protected
for forms in order to work. The best way is to add the Lock button to the
Quick Access Toolbar.

And alternative, which doesn't need forms protection but does need macros,
is shown at http://gregmaxey.mvps.org/Add_Toggle_Objects.htm.
