Access SQL - add constant row to result

I want to create a report producing job totals for each division, and then list new job details if any.  I want a total for every division, plus a total for (NONE) as some jobs don't have a division.

SO, my report source query needs to have every division from DIVISION table, plus one more (NONE).

eg.
red group
blue group
green group
(NONE)


I have done this before but just can't find it.

It is something like:
select DivisionName from DIVISION UNION ALL select "(NONE)"

but access requires an input table for this last bit.

I do not want to create a dummy table, nor add (NONE) to my DIVISION table.  I'm sure I have been successful with this before.  I am dreaming?

I think you were almost there! Yes, Access requires a table name. A 'Top 1' from the same table can help as follows:

select DivisionName from DIVISION 
UNION ALL 
select Top 1 '(NONE)' as DivisionName 
    from DIVISION
