how to include additional application files to publish in express

I am publishing a application to a web server for deployment to a group of users. i would like to include a file with the build, 'data_path.txt'. Viewing the publish tab of the project properties and opening the 'Application Files' dialog, I can't find a way to add additional files. It seems odd because there are other 'txt' showing up.

add txt to your project. set properties of txt file to

Build Action: Content
Copy To output Dir: Copy If Newer

And then you take a look back at Application files. You'll see your new txt file is there and set to be copied automatically :)
