Hello:

I'd like to run a query in SQL View,  and have a recordset returned, then add a constant variable to that set for each Company code. Would I use append function?

Like:
SELECT DISTINCT TOP 100 PERCENT ad_adno, ad_code, ad_rep
FROM         OPENQUERY(mysql, 'select * from cuad') Rowset_1
ORDER BY ad_code, ad_adno

Recordset
      1      4B      JAVIER
      2      4B      JAVIER
      3      4B      JAVIER
        A      4B      JAVIER
Thanks,
Joseph

simple:
SELECT DISTINCT TOP 100 PERCENT ad_adno, cast( ad_code as varchar(20)) + 'B' , ad_rep 
FROM         OPENQUERY(mysql, 'select * from cuad') Rowset_1
ORDER BY ad_code, ad_adno

Hello:

No, 4B is the name of the company, what I want to add is the A line, what is returned is 1,2,3,4 and then I want A to be added at the end. Sorry for the mixup.
Thanks,

Joseph

something like this:
SELECT DISTINCT cast(ad_adno as varchar(10)), ad_code, ad_rep
FROM         OPENQUERY(mysql, 'select * from cuad') Rowset_1
UNION ALL
SELECT DISTINCT 'A', ad_code, ad_rep
FROM         OPENQUERY(mysql, 'select * from cuad') Rowset_1
ORDER BY 2, 1
