EASY QUESTION...i am using ASP.NET/C#

My question is how do i get the values from the DropDownList(S) in C# codebehind from the tables?

Below is a snip of code:

 <table style="width: 323px; border-right: black 1px solid; border-top: black 1px solid; border-left: black 1px solid; border-bottom: black 1px solid;">
            <tr>
                <td colspan="3">
                    <span style="font-size: 10pt">Close Calendar Schedule Reminders</span></td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td style="width: 1px; height: 24px;">
                    <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server">
                    </asp:DropDownList></td>
                <td style="width: 31px; height: 24px">
                    <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList2" runat="server">
                    </asp:DropDownList></td>
                <td style="height: 24px;">
                    <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server" Font-Size="10pt">Insert</asp:LinkButton></td>

You used the word "from" twice in your question, so it is dificult to understand what you need the data from.

Can you restate it?

I am going to assume you have populated the DisplayText AND the DisplayValue with a datasource so here you go:
//when user selects the dropdown and a postback event occurs...
         string selectedVal1 = DropDownList1.SelectedValue;
         string selectedVal2 = DropDownList2.SelectedValue;
