I currently have a spreadsheet that is a gradebook, report card and attendance tracker for my wife (teacher). I would like to make some changes to the spreadsheet, to make it more acceptable to change (mainly adding a student, removing a student, etc). Would access integration be the best for this? Is there a website that shows something along these lines (something that I could greatly expand on?).

thanks!

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.

A spreadsheet will work fine. I think if you give us more details of what you would like to accomplish, maybe we can help. I have done something like this for employees and evaluations. Each employee has there own tab. I have a master tab that shows certain data from each employees sheet.

Let us know,
Michael

the problem that i am having with my spreadsheet is that its tough to make "simple" changes. i have a limit of 30 students. when i created the spreadsheet this was fine, but then there was a class with 30 students, 1 dropped, another added. this was not a simple task to remove the one student and add another. that is one thing that i am looking to do.

if you want to download a sheet, here is a Link.

Very nicely done on your spreadsheet!!! I see what your saying. Yes, Access would be a must for you!!!!
I have a book that I learned a lot about Access. The Authors name is John Viescas. The book has a white cover. I know they have it at Barnes and Noble. This one helped me.
Also, the "Books for Dummies" puts things in plain english. I think it's called "Access for Dummies".

If you know Access, Many of the data can be transfered to tables quite easily. I did it with an existing excel order form I had.

Hope this helps,
Michael
