just add it into your query

select [Account#] , [AccountTitle] from [RIA Accounts] where IsNull([Account])


now remember, all queries in your union statement must return the same number of columns
so since this is in the first column, if subsequent queries dont have it, add in the missing column, like u did

select [Account#] , [AccountTitle] from [RIA Accounts] where IsNull([Account])
union
select '' as something, ...
