I am creating an entry form, and have a drop down box with data pulled from an external file. I want to allow the user to enter text in this field as well, if what they want is not in the file. Is this possible? Thanks.

You'll need to provide a separate control - an input element - for the user to utilise. You'll also probably want a pair of radio buttons that the user can use to signify which control is meant to be taken as input, and which one is to be ignored.
