I have the below and even if no data is in the table, I want the combobox to at leas show the term "[All]J".  However, while it works in two other comboboxes, I cannot get this one to display the [All] term even if there is no data from the other union statement.

SELECT "[All]" As ProjectFullID, "[All]" As ProjectName, "[All]" As ProjectID From tblProjects
UNION
SELECT tblProjectFTE.ProjectFullId, tblProjectFTE.ProjectName, tblProjectFTE.ProjectID
FROM tblProjects INNER JOIN tblProjectFTE ON tblProjects.ProjectID = tblProjectFTE.ProjectID
WHERE (((tblProjects.Status) Not In ("Closed","Excluded")));

if ProjectFullId and ProjectID is numeric

SELECT 0 As ProjectFullID, "<All>" As ProjectName, 0 As ProjectID From tblProjects
UNION
SELECT tblProjectFTE.ProjectFullId, tblProjectFTE.ProjectName, tblProjectFTE.ProjectID
FROM tblProjects INNER JOIN tblProjectFTE ON tblProjects.ProjectID = tblProjectFTE.ProjectID
WHERE (((tblProjects.Status) Not In ("Closed","Excluded")));

It will happen if you select (anything, including an expression) from tblprojects, but tblProjects has no rows.

Create separate table with one row and select 'all' from that table.

In SQL Server you can select <something> without FROM, but in Access you have to select from table or from query.

That was it, there were no rows in the table!  I did not even think of that.  I put a seed row in and it works now.  Thank you,
