Data validation applied to tickboxes

+1
−0

Given ColumnA contains a Text header (A1), an allowed maximum number (A2), fifty tickboxes (A3:A62) and a formula in A63 of:

=countif(A3:A62,TRUE)

how can I block application of more than the allowed maximum number of ticks, or at least warn that the limit has been exceeded?

There is a Q on Web Applications [WA] that remains unanswered after three months with a problem of the kind outlined above. On WA the tag at present is [google-sheets-query] but why so is not clear to me.

@pnuts Is it OK to rename [tickboxes] to [checkboxes]? It has the advantage that it makes sense also for many other application types. Alexei‭ 8 months ago

@Alexei Sure. I think Sheets favours 'tickboxes' but I can't tell them apart and there would be NO point in having both. pnuts‭ 6 months ago
