Checkbox in Excel

Arik123 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I need to create an Excel (xlsx or even xls) file that contains checkboxes. Is there any way to do it?

Thanks a lot!

EDIT: I forgot to add that I'm on Linux. So any Win32 solution probably won't work.

    Isn't xlsx not just a zipped xml file?

    If it's even possible to have a checkbox in excel (?) , than you should be able to identify the code after unzipping it. :)
