In this is example I hv used repeater. Same can be achieved using gridview.

protected void rptr_ItemDataBound(object sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e)
        DropDownList ddl = null;
        if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item)
            ddl = (DropDownList)e.Item.FindControl("YourDropDownListID");
            DataRowView drv = (DataRowView)e.Item.DataItem;

            BindDropDown(ddl, drv["YourDropDownValueFromDataBase"].ToString());

Use BindDropDown(DropDownList ddl, string selectedValue) to bind your dropdown and set selected value using second parameter.

you can use OnRowDataBound event of grid view to assign data set to drop down list.

Before assignment get control using findControl method and then assign appropriate values to drop down list.

Please let us know if any.
