This is very basic! And I am having a problem... I want to insert a dot or
check mark in a cell. Where can I find a dot/check mark? I thought they can
be easily found, but I can't find them. Can anybody help?

Format the cell for the font 'Marlett', and type the letter "a" (without
quotes).

This article refers to current excel versions.

If you have excel 2000 or before you will have to use another method.
One way is to open Word, which in 2000 if not before does have the insert,
symbol.
Then copy it to excel, where it can be pasted.
for a check mark (tick in the UK) in word it is on the windings font as are
several sort of dots.

Also see

for putting in symbols directly by using the codes.

Good Luck,
