Based on the very vague description of your problem, I would suggest a redesign of your code to avoid this situation.

Solution 1

So do this:

commandtext = "Select * From TableName Where columnvalue = '" + combobox.value + "'";

i am currently using the code you suggested as
commandtext = "Select * From TableName Where columnvalue = '" + combobox.value + "'";

but my requirement is to filter the database according to the value of combobox.
if i have 4 combobox then it will have 16 possibilites to filter the database

but if i wrote the original code as
commandstring = "SELECT * FROM TABLENAME WHERE 1=1 and 1="

replaced the value "and 1=1 " with "and value = '"+combobox.value+"' "
then i will be more dynamic
sp i dont have to check each combobox if it is blank or not..

You will have to check each combobox or else you won't know how many filters to use. You might want to use case statements if you have a lot of potential combinations.

i want to check as

here i want to replace and 1=1
here also i want to replace second 1=1 with "and value= '"+combobox.value+"'

finally '
my command will be
SE:ECT * FROM TABLENAME WHERE 1=1 +(and followed by ONLY the selected values of select combobox )
