I have a report that is going to be printed to be taken out in to the field. It needs to have the checkbox visible to be checked on the print out if necessary. How can I make this empty box show on the report?

np
just make a new formula text field and translate the checkbox to words. 


Like

IF([my checkbox field]=true, "CHECKED", "not checked")

Sorry about the image. I have to post here from my phone due to restrictions. Anyway this is the result of the text formulas. No box, just two more fields with text. Any suggestions?

Sorry, I mis-read your question.  I guess that you are asking simply how to make a column with a square box to manually check on a paper print out.   I will have to locate an image of a square box first. .... I will have a look in google images when i get a chance.

I appreciate that and I can make images using rich text formulas. I've done several, the problem is they're basically conditional. If xxx then img. I just need a static box on the report for the field workers to check if their job meets the check box criteria. If that's not possible, I'll figure out an alternative. Thank you Mark

If you know how to make an image, then just make an image and not use an IF.
