      Creating an attendance database

           I am working my way through all the threads that seem to deal with creating an attendance database, but so far not found a simple and effective solution. So I would appreciate any url or information on how to set up a simple attendance database in Filemaker. Simple to do in Excel, but I am having difficulty figuring out a simple solution in Filemaker.
            
           Basically my desire is to list the names of people, then have a starting date with each subsequent column the starting date plus 7 days (i.e. a weekly class). All I want to do is check the people attending. The reason for the starting date is to construct a database that I can simply modify quarterly (i.e. a new quarterly starting database).
            
           So:
            
           Name                     Date  Date+7  Date+14....
            
           Any suggestions to create something like this would be appreciated. Right now I'm using formulae to construct the dates, but that is so unwieldy that I know there has to be a more elegant method.
            
           Thanks.
