[Tex/LaTex] How to write checkmark in latex


I want to put some checkmarks inside table cells.

I have put a cross sign using $\times$ but I really don't know how to write a checkmark in latex.

I used \usepackage{bbding} package and \checkmark but it doesnt work,

if it is \checkmark, it shows nothing

if it is \Checkmark, it shows a !

an example source code:
(there is an additional cls file IEEEtran.cls : mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/IEEEtran/IEEEtran.cls)










    ffffffffffff \Checkmark

Without PSTricks.

\def\checkmark{\tikz\fill[scale=0.4](0,.35) -- (.25,0) -- (1,.7) -- (.25,.15) -- cycle;} 
This is a \checkmark checkmark.
