Dynamic Sort Repeater

I am using a repeater control to format results from an MS SQL Table.  I would like to place some combination of dropdowns on the page to compose the sort order.  Then click a button to refresh the sort order as specified.  How do I update the selectcommand to change and update the ORDER BY.  OR if there is a better way to approach this, that would also be helpful.  (using the repeater is motivated by the resulting format I need to display)  Thank You

In click event of Button (the one using to update repeater with newly selected order) .. change the Select command text with newly created QueryText with values from DropDownlists used for Order selection.

If you are using SqlDataSource then here is the way.
SqlDataSource1.SelectCommand= "SELECT COL1, COL2,COL3 FROM myTable where myTestID='" + Session["Userid"] + " Order by " + dropdownOrderBy.SelectedValue + ";

The above code tells how to update Query .. it is example not a working code sample.

Thanks
