There is a dropdown list control (aspx page)

DropDownList_Title_ID   (databound to sql server for dynamically generating list content)

pulling back these x2 fields:    TitleName  (string),  Title_ID (int)

I can get the selected item value (int) by using: DropDownList_Title_ID.Text   .... but how do I pull the equivalent TitleName field (i.e. the selected dropdown item).  Want to transfer the TitleName value into a string.

Your time and efforts with enquiry are much apprieated.

Usually the drop down's primary key is bound as the the value member and the title is bound as display member. Selecteditem.value would give the ID and the selectedItem.Text would give the title.

You can try doing that or you could get the title from the data reader/ list you are binding to the dropdown by iterating to see what title has the Id selected
