Hi, I am using the "FindByText" method of the dropdown.<BR><BR>&#060;code&#062;<BR>drpDown.Items .FindByText(e.cellValues(6).Text)<BR>&#060;code&#0 62;<BR><BR>It seems to ignore the item if the case of item to search for is not exactly same as that of the item in the itemList.<BR><BR>What is the best way to solve this?Do I cast, or does the dropdown come with a built-in method that I am not aware of?<BR><BR>cheers, <BR>yogi.
