Adding "new" or "other" to a query populated dropdown list?

P: n/a
Hi All,

My apologies for asking something that I'm sure has been answered
for. But, my google searching can't find a proper set of keywords.

I would like to add "New..." or "other..." or "Show All" to my combo
boxes.

I'm tired of having to put buttons beside them for "special options".

Current case: I've got a regular old dropdown combo box that I'm
populating with all of the available dates in a table that has many
dates. That's easy.

But, I don't know how to insert the string "New...".

Only option I've dreamed up is a Union query where I have a fake
"options" seeding table that has one row with the word "New..." typed
in. There's gotta be an easier way, right?

(I'm of course going to script a bunch of shenanigans off of the
"after update" when it equals "New...".)

TIA,

Jon
