combo pulldown ordering question

P: n/a
I am using a combo pull down to fill in values into a form. One record is
ADD NEW which pops up a new form for data entry and it then populates the
form with the new data when they close out of it.
Is there a way for me sort so that it is the first item they see when they
click on the pull down and then have everything left sort ascending behind
it.

so that it would look something like this

ADD NEW
abackus
acid
ardvark
rather than
abackus
acid
ADD NEW
ardvark

overtime, there is the potential for it to be pushed off the intial view

I use angle brackets around whatever I want at the top of the list:

<ADD NEW>

This sorts to the top.
