Can I manually input the "Principal Business Code" on the Schedule C part?

None of the codes provided fit the description of the business.  Is there a way I can manually input the NAICS code?

The IRS does not ask for the NAICS code on Schedule C.  It asks for the Principal Business Activity Code, which is from the list in the Instructions.

Pick the one that is closest.

The principal business codes are from the naics codes, and the list provided in the tax programs are not all inclusive
