How Does an Event Trigger Work in DataWeb
rlocke asked:
For example, if you had a list of 20 students in a class and you were checking for attendance and every student that was not present would get a check in a corresponding box.  Is it possible to update a table with the information that identifies the students that were missing that day?  So over the course of a school year you would have accurate attendance record showing how many days each student may
have missed over the course of the school year?
  rlocke (DataWeb) responded:
