UPDATE Command in SqlDataSource Control Works Only Once

I have a simple ASP.NET page where I am updating a user's selection via a dropdown list.  i.e., They make a choice; they have a value stored in the backend database table representing that value (choice).  The Choice table holds both the user's ID and the choice ID.  When I first initiate the table (more on what that means in a second), I can use an EditItemTemplate to change any of the choice values for any of the players only ONCE EACH.  i.e., If I go back to change a field value that I have already changed once, it will not accept the change a subsequent time.  However, and this is what I mean by initiate the table, when I make changes in values directly in the database tables, it sort of resets the table and/or values and "starts it over" so I can make changes again when I launch the page.  Then I can do this all over again, once for each user.  I have gone over and over my SQL and I am sure it is correct.  I have looked at the table properties and am not finding anything that would be a permission or table/field property issue.  I hope this is enough infirmation for someone to offer assistance and/or suggestions.  Thanks in advance.  Also, this is someone else's project.  He came to me for help and I'm stuck.  I'll check with him and if OK, I'll attach a code snippet to help this along.  Thanks again!

If you have used datareader for sqldatasource then change it with dataset.

when u update any row then you need to commit that row.
This problem is due to "The row is changed and not committed"
so that it is not allowed to edit that row.

This should have been taken care of in the UPDATE command within the SqlDataSource control.  I thought there was corruption somwhere, got tired of trying to find and fix the "needle in the haystack", and so just rebuilt the whole project in about an hour.  Works great now.  I believe you were on the correct path -- you affirmed my hunches, divyeshhdoshi.  Thank you.
