Hi,
You can use User Defined functions in the database( Assumed you are using MSSQL). Please have a look into the following Function that will return the parent path if the categoryid is given. The @ParentId is the categoryid. Please modify the function according to your table structure or post your table structure and some sample data so that we can help you.

CREATE FUNCTION dbo.GetParentCatPath(@ParentId int)
RETURNS VARCHAR(2000) AS
BEGIN
      DECLARE @blnExit       AS BIT,
            @vchResult       AS VARCHAR(2000),
            @CatId            AS INT,
            @CatName      AS VARCHAR(100)

      SET       @blnExit=0
      SET       @vchResult=''

      WHILE @blnExit=0
      BEGIN

            SELECT       @ParentId=CM.ct_ParentCategoryID,
                  @CatId=CM.ct_ID,
                  @CatName=CM.ct_CategoryName
            FROM       category_master CM
            WHERE       CM.ct_ID=@ParentId

            IF @vchResult<>''
                  SET       @vchResult= @CatName + ' '+ '>' + ' ' + @vchResult
            ELSE
                  SET       @vchResult= @CatName

            IF @ParentId=0
                  SET      @blnExit=1

      END

      RETURN @vchResult
END


Hope this helps you,
Cheers,
Sukumar

        cnn.Close()
        cmd.Dispose()
        cnn.Dispose()
