Set AccessDataSource Parameter based on User.Identity.Name

I have a Drop Down List that loads values based on who the User is that has accessed the page.

I have created a Drop Down List that uses the following AccessDataSource.....
    <asp:AccessDataSource ID="PermittedAccessList_DS" runat="server"
        DataFile="~/App_Data/OutcomesDB.mdb"
        SelectCommand="SELECT tlkp_TableSecurity.TableSecurity FROM (tlkp_TableSecurity INNER JOIN tlkp_UserSecurity ON tlkp_TableSecurity.ID = tlkp_UserSecurity.TABLE) WHERE (Username = ?) ORDER BY tlkp_TableSecurity.TableSecurity">
        <SelectParameters>
            <asp:Parameter Name="UserName" Type="string" DefaultValue="" />
        </SelectParameters>
    </asp:AccessDataSource>

I have put a Response.Write on the Page to display the Username based on User.Identity.Name. It is working correctly.

IN the Code behind, I have the following......

Private Sub DDLTables_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DDLTables.DataBound
     Dim sUserID As String = User.Identity.Name
     PermittedAccessList_DS.SelectParameters(0).DefaultValue = sUserID
End Sub

This does NOT work. The Drop Down List comes back empty everytime. What am I missing?
