I have an existing table with CrewID as the Primary Key.  I want to add a crew (<-- Unknown Crew -->) with a CrewID = 0.

Any help is greatly appreciated

You mean you want to explicitly set the ID. Is it an IDENTITY column?

just do:
SET IDENTITY INSERT ON
INSERT INTO CrewID (id, name) VALUES (0,'Unknown')
SET IDENTITY INSERT OFF

Thanks so much - it solved my problem.  

(FYI: Works perfect - but by the way I had to use identity_Insert with an underline between the two words)
