I know that using a listbox or combo box I can add information at runtime such as additem.thisthing   but how would I do this using a DataCombo?
I am currently using a recordset to loop through fields in a table and this appears on a combo box. I also needed to add something at runtime and was able to additem so that it appears at runtime, but it's not stored in the database.

So how do you additem to a datacombo if possible?
I would need to see some code that can do this.
Thanks

Let me restate the problem to make sure I understand what it is you want.  You have a DataCombo control and you want to be able to add values to it at runtime and have those new values stored in the database that the DataCombo draws from.  Is that correct?  You also state that you've figured out a way to add a new item to the DataCombo control.  I'm not aware of any way to use AddItem with the DataCombo control so I'm guessing that you're setting DataCombo.Text to the new value.  Do I have that right?  Assuming I'm correctly understanding the issue, then this solution should do the trick.  Add a command button titled "Add" or "Add New" or something like that next to the DataCombo control.  There are then two ways to go.  One, you can have the Add button popup a dialog box and ask the user for the new value to add.  Two, you can have the user type the new value into the DataCombo and then click the Add button to add it into the database.  After adding the new value you should tell the DataCombo control to Refill itself to refresh its content.
