How to add on a form (a tab of that form) a list of an unknown number of attendants whose names are taken from a table


I need to follow the attendants of a weekly meeting.. The easyest way for the people who use the database.
Tha database inputs a lot of information and decisions made by the attendants. They can be ant number between 3 or 15 and the names can change once or twice a year for 20% of them
SO adding or removing names must be easy (already done)
But attesting the presence of them must also be easy

 I imagine something that create a list taken from the practitionner table and the animator of the meeting has just to cote a case right next to each name to do the job.. But I have no idea how to do this.. and take trace of it..
 Each meeting is a record...with a single date.  For each of these records/Dates   I must know the number of attending people and be able to extract from any table who they were...  

 Any help would be greatly appreciated
this will be done by requiries. It is not a question. The question is how can I associate in a table

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You should have table with data like:
Meeting ID, MeetingDate (and other nesessary fields about meeting), ParticipantID
One subform from query with simple join, second with excluding join (all missing in first query)
For tracing you could add separate table, where you can have:
MeetingID, ParticipantID, DateOfOperation, Added (True/False)

If you can upload sample from your DB, I can give more details.

This is what I should do as a requiry..
 Wh was there and when

But How can I input the information, as simply as possible, during the meeting it self
I tried a solution with 14 editing windows, each related to the table of practitioner. Butthis is really not esay to use. Takes too much time to the secretary of the meeting

I would like to see, the display of everu name of people supposed to be there (list taken from the previous table) and just click on a square to input their presence or absence

May be the attache powerpoint will make thigs a bit more understandable
Look at sample
