This is poor data structure.  Better would be to have a table for Attendance like this:

Attendance:
AttendanceID, AutoNumber
StudentID, Long Integer -- foreign key to Students (table with Student information)
ClassDate, date/time
AttStatus, text -- Attendance Status (A=Absent, P=Present)

As you stipulate it, it is a task for a spreadsheet.
