Hello May,

This cannot be done by standard feature as my understanding. However, what about use a second text field which can be used to take in user input if their option is not provided in the dropdown list. You can even use some simple Javascript to perform the following function:

every time the form is submitted, check if the text box is empty: (1) if it is, means the user selected from dropdown, which is alright; (2) if not, pass this value to the dropdown field and save it in the corresponding table field. Use the same field from the main table as the source of the dropdown list, so any new input can also be displayed in the dropdown next time when the form is open.
