    Attendance Tracker with drop downs

    I am trying to do an attendance tracker for about 900 people. These people will be divided into 30 people to 30 rooms. Column A will be a dropdown menu with the room numbers and column B will then return the list of people in that room. I would then like Column C to have a drop down menu with Absent/Present/Late/Excused options.

    Does this require a macro or can it be done with data validation. If anyone could steer me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

    That is a great start. Thanks very much. The one thing I am wondering is, can once the room number is selected, have column B display all the people in said room with drop downs in column C to select the attendance? The current method is definitely workable but I know that people will want to print daily attendance reports by room so I am trying to anticipate how that would work.

    Thanks very much for your assistance so far. Very much appreciated!
