Hi there,

Dim Str As String = "August 31, 2004. htm"
Str = Str.SubString(0,Str.LastIndexOf("."))

Now the Str will have "August 31, 2004"

Here you go...

            For Each dra In diar1
                Dim dr As DataRow = ds.Tables(0).NewRow()
                dr(0) = dra.Name.SubString(0,dra.Name.LastIndexOf("."))
                dr(1) = "c:\Events\HTML\" & dra.Name
                ds.Tables(0).Rows.Add(dr)
            Next

Which DDL ? Where is ur DDL ? What are you doing in the selectedIndexChanged ? Please explain...
Note:  You can always do DDL.SelectedIndex = -1   to show blank.

or, Insert a blank after populating the DDL:
DDL.Items.Insert(0, "--Select All--")    -OR- DDL.Items.Insert(0, "")
