Adding value to drop down list

I have a drop down list that functions using codes to determine a rat
of pay by the hour.  However, a couple of times a year, the payrol
people pay lump sum payments that can vary.  Is there a way to write 
drop down list with a "blank" so that the user's own data (amount to b
paid) of an amount not specified in the drop down list can be added i
by the user?

Thanks for any advice in advance

1. Go to Data/Validation/Error Alert
2. Uncheck the box "Show error alert after invalid data is entered."

Hope this is what you are looking for.

Well, that was so much easier than I expected!  Everything is so simpl
when you really know how, isn't it?  

So wishing I knew more, but ever thankful to others who actually do.
Thanks you very much for your help. I don't know what I would d
without the suggestions on this board when I get stuck.

Adding ActiveX to dialog with wrapper
When I add an ActiveX object to a dialog using the dialog editor - right click - insert activeX object, the help on the resulting activex selection tool states that a wrapper will not be added by using this method. If you need a wrapper, it suggests using the class view. This is using Visual Studio 2005. I'm having some problems with this on an existing project. To make sure I understand the process, I created a new MFC project, added a dialog, created a class for that dialog and added a Flexgrid object using the right click method in the dialog.
