You have students and classes and attendance - these would normally be the tables created in the database
This is a Google "class student attendance site:forums.filemaker.com" of relevant threads on this forum
Yes, but what else do you need to do with this? Is this JUST an attendance taking DB or will you need to do more?
Do you have just one class or many classes?
If many classes, can the same student attend more than one class at a time?
This is why many of the threads you are reading are not simple.
