Check Box

The Check Box form Control allows the selection of multiple items from a list of items. When one item is selected, the other check box can also be checked.

4. Press ALT F11 and Go to Insert >> Module and paste the following code
Option Explicit
Sub ChartUsingCheckBox()
Dim rCell As Range
Range("O2").Formula = "FALSE"
For Each rCell In ActiveSheet.Range("CheckBoxRng2").Cells
rCell.EntireColumn.Hidden = Not rCell.Value
Next
If Range("L2").Value = True And Range("M2").Value = True And Range("N2").Value = True Then
Range("O2").Formula = "TRUE"
ElseIf Range("L2").Value = False And Range("M2").Value = False And Range("N2").Value = False Then
Range("O2").Formula = "FALSE"
End If
End Sub 
Sub ChartUsingCheckBox2()
If Sheet1.Range("O2").Value = True Then
    Range("L2:N2").Formula = "TRUE"
    Columns("L:N").EntireColumn.Hidden = False
ElseIf Sheet1.Range("O2").Value = False Then
    Range("L2:N2").Formula = "FALSE"
    Columns("L:N").EntireColumn.Hidden = True
End If
End Sub
Note : 
O2 - Cell link of "All" CheckBox
L2,M2,N2 - Cell link of the remaining 3 check boxes
5. Assign the "ChartUsingCheckBox2" macro to "All" checkbox and "ChartUsingCheckBox" to each of the remaining 3 check boxes.
