Hey Guys,<BR>I am using vb.net in visual studio to build webforms. I have a page that has 3 dropdown lists on it. These dropdowns allow the user to modify data that is in a database. When the user goes to this particular page, the record they are modifying is being looked up based on a querystring. My question is, how can I set the dropdown list(s) value and text to the value saved in the database (if there is any) OR make it index 0 (which is blank) if the value is null in the db? The values stored in the db are smallint type related to another table. So, I cannot use the word values for the dropdown text and value.
