If you need more rows in your table, you'll need to add the number of your row to the end of the marker. The 'Test Table Check Box List' marker is ${element-1297748}, adding a number into this can show which row it will need to show from your submission. 

If you want it from row 6, you'll need to put -6 into the marker 

${element-1297748-6}

If you want it from row 20, you'll need to put -20 into the marker
