Access Tip: Student Attendance
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   7/17/2008 10:25:20 AM

I received a really good question from a customer who wanted to learn how to track student attendance in Access. I put together a FREE Mini Tutorial for the Tips & Tricks section on how to do it with a couple of tables, a form, and an APPEND query. I also threw in just a little bit of VBA code to spice things up. Enjoy!

Very helpful tutorial. Everything was working well for me until I changed the date from Date() to Forms!AttendanceF!AttendanceDate in the Append Query.  Once I did this step the date would not show in the Attendance table when I hit the go button.

I just watched your tutorial on Student Attendance although helpful it did not explain how to then create a report showing the Attendance for each child with their names and not id numbers for the month. Read More...

Thank so much Richard for your response.
So i'll end  up with 3 tables in total. Two which hold student data (both have PK StudentID?) and one with attendance data (date etc.and also foreign StudentID?) I am not a complete novice in access and have made test database.  I am trying to purchase your tutorials via Pay pal but with no luck. I have so many questions to ask, some are intermediate level ones. For example my biggest problem is the following. Can I make a list of duties for which the students are responsible and make a form in which a user can checks two or more boxes(duties) and runs a querry which returns the corresponding students. I am sure this can be done without VBA, I would like to stay in the limits of macros only if possible. Read More...

I've just seen this awesome tutorial. I dont need the VBA part but: i allready have a table Students with bunch of fields: e-mail, adress, age atc. I don't know I can put the yes no field in this just doesn't seem right. So, I end up with two student tables, one that holds their general information, and one if I want to trach their attendance. How to solve this? Thanks in advance Read More...
