Adding a "pseudo record" to a view.

I have a view, something like:

SELECT DISTINCT Salesman FROM SalesReport

This gives me the proper list.  However, I need to add one record that does not exist in the SalesReport table, that is "--ALL--"  (It's for an issue with Crystal Reports, if you really need to know)

Can I do this?  How?

Thanks for jarring my memory.
