I created a database to manage my students.  I created a query from this table as a lookup for the students' names, which also retrieves the Student ID.  I have a separate table for tracking attendance.  This table includes the student ID and date/time of the class only.  I'd like to create a form that:

has a drop-down box to select the student
then, using the student, ID, shows (in a subform) all of the classes that student has attended.

1, Bind your first query to a dropdownlist.
2. Have selectedindexchanged event on the dropdown with Autopostback set to true. For example,called xyz
3. Pass the Student Id to the event in #2. Query the database (you have the attendance table) and bring back the data.
4. Bind the data to a listview or gridview

I'm assuming you're using Web Forms (ASP.Net)

That's the database. What will you use to develop the application/front end/website?

I was able to get it to work.  Thanks, Camilla.  
Here's what  I did:
I created a blank form, then added a combo box that the row source as the student table.  I then used the Insert SubForm query wizard to add a box for the attendance.  It automatically asked which field linked the two.  Thanks, again.
