I expect this to be easy, but can't seem to figure it out.

I have a combobox that uses a query for it's recordsource.  How can I add a value to the combolist that states "None Selected."  I want this value to appear as the default when the form is opened as well as be a selection within the drop-down.  However, I do not want to physically add this as a value to the table.

The VBA will capture the logic handling based on the selection.

Thanks!

in the recordsource add this with a union, e.g.,

  recordsource = select id, text from mytable union all select 99, "none selected" from mytable

Sorry, it's been a while since I've used a Union join.... where exactly would that go... here's my exact SQL:

SELECT dbo_fk_area_codes.area_code, dbo_fk_area_codes.area_name
FROM tbl_DT_DocTrack,  dbo_fk_area_codes
WHERE tbl_DT_DocTrack.Area_Code=dbo_fk_area_codes.area_code
GROUP BY dbo_fk_area_codes.area_code, dbo_fk_area_codes.area_name
ORDER BY dbo_fk_area_codes.area_name;
