Incomplete. You need to share the full code snippet related to it and add more detail on what you mean by 'doesnt display'. Did you DEBUG?

try this.
C#
//ex. cmbCurrentPhase.Items.Add(new ListItem(read.GetValue(11).ToString(),"value"))
cmbCurrentPhase.Items.Add(new ListItem("Text","value"));

Hi,

try like this..

C#
cmbCurrentPhase.Items.FindByText(read.GetValue(11).ToString()).Selected = true;


this will work only if the string given by read.GetValue(11).ToString() exists in combobox items

hope it helps.
