Inserting radio buttons in Excel 2003 is done by using the "Form" toolbar. This toolbar isn't visible by default and needs to be activated to be seen. Once active, you can see the different interactive buttons that can be added to your spreadsheet. These buttons can offer versatility and a user friendly interface for your end users. The radio button must be customised once it is inserted into the spreadsheet.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open Excel 2003. Right click in the grey area of your standard toolbar. You will see a list of available toolbars. Click the "Form" toolbar.

  2. 2

    Click the button that has the radio dial button. If you point to it, it will display "Option Button." The cursor will become a thin "+." This is your indicator to draw the radio button control field. Click and drag until you get a small box. The box will display the name "OptionButton1."

  3. 3

    Rename the radio button by right clicking on the newly drawn button. Select "Edit Text." Type a new name over the default name.
