The SQL needed for updating field <MyField> from table <MyTable> from value <OldValue> to value <NewValue> is:

update MyTable
set Myfield = NewValue
where Myfield = OldValue

The NewValue value should be passed from the dropdown listbox you are referring to.

Hope this helps ...

I have a table as :
Name      ServerName      Active
ABC          server1            True
ABC          server2            False
ABC          server3            False
XYZ          server1            False
XYZ          server2            False
XYZ          server3            True
So in this table i have for one name only one server is active.
if i change the server name in the dropdown, then in  table the selected  server name should become active true and the rest should be false.      

Thank you.

You need two updates for that !
And two parameters as well.

(no error handling, rollback or conditional commit in the example script !)

Hope this helps ...
begin tran
 
-- set all to false for @Name
update Table
set Active = false
where Name = @Name --> parameter for the name column needs to be passed.
 
-- set to true for @Name and @ServerName
update Table
set Active = true
where Name = @Name
and ServerName = @ServerName --> parameter for the ServerName needs to be passed
 
commit

How do i get the value selected from dropdown into the Sql query.

cmd4 = new SqlCommand("Update sngConnectionTable set Active='True' where PipelineName='SNG' And ServerName=serverName",con);

where serverName is the one I want from the Dropdown.

Thank you.

DropDownList1.SelectedValue this will give u the selected value of dropdownlist as a string. You need to hv to values i.e. currentValue and oldValue so that you can set active field accordingly
