I can create my  xml file in of the type. I do have the flexibility of creating the xml file of anyformat easy for programming. The ID is stored as the value of the dropdownlist and the name is the display of dropdown list.
<Groups>

<name id=12>Groupname1</name>
</Groups>

It's been a while since I worked with this, but here's some old code I had which will go through an XML file and print the id and value.  Yiou just have to add the drop-down box code.

Sub Page_Load(S As Object, E As EventArgs)

      If Not IsPostBack Then
                        DIM xpthdoc1 as XPathDocument
                        DIM xpthnv1 as XPathNavigator

              xpthdoc1=new XpathDocument(server.mappath("groups.xml"))
              xpthnv1=xpthdoc1.CreateNavigator()
              
              xpthnv1.MoveToRoot()
              xpthnv1.MoveToFirstChild()
       
            while (xpthnv1.MoveToFirstChild())
                  Response.Write(xpthnv1.name & ": " & xpthnv1.Value & "<br>")

                            while (xpthnv1.MoveToNext())
                        Response.Write("2" &xpthnv1.name & ": " & xpthnv1.Value & "<br>")
                  end while

            end while

      End If

End Sub
