You need to loop through the items and set the slected property iof the item that you want to be selected be set to true.

Are you using WinForms or ASP.Net?

In Winforms you just use the slectedIndex property i.e.

cboX.SelectedIndex = 2

If you need to loop through it you use the following

        Dim c As Integer
        For c = 1 To cboX.Items.Count - 1
            If CType(cboX.Items(c), String) = myStringVarToCheckAgainst Then
                cboX.SelectedIndex = c
                Exit For
            End If
        Next

In ASP.Net you use the following code:

For intCount = 0 To (objDropDownList.Items.Count - 1)
    If objDropDownList.Items(intCount).Value = myVarToCheckAgainstThen
        objDropDownList.Items(intCount).Selected = True
        Exit For
    End If
Next intCount

Hope this helps
