Default Check boxes in Word


I am creating a table in Word 2016. I have four columns and each column has a series of check boxes. I need to have a "Total" cell on the bottom of each column to total the number of boxes checked in each respective column. I have figured out how to total all checked boxes but I need four separate columns totaled. Additionally, I can run the macro and it shows me the number, but I need it to print in a line entitled "TOTAL". Any help would be appreciated.

Since you haven't told us what kind of checkboxes you're using, attached the document to a post, or even posted your code, it's impossible to advise on what you need to do. That said, see:

Thanks for your help. I have tried to figure this out using box regular check boxes and Active X check boxes. Attached is an example of the one with the Active X. I am trying to add the number of checks in the column, hopefully that makes sense.

There seems to be a fundamental flaw in your document's logic, in that you're allowing multiple checkboxes (or none) to be selected for each item. You also previously said:

but your attachment contains no macros; indeed, being a docx file, it cannot.
