Bind string value to AccessDataSource Parameter

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
     Dim sUserID As String = User.Identity.Name
     PermittedAccessList_DS.SelectParameters(0).DefaultValue = sUserID
End Sub

Why doesn't Drop Down List show values based on the Parameter?

Try calling Databind() on the Dropdown control after setting the parameter.

Doesn't fix anything.

Still doesn't work.

Can you post some more snippets of the code?  Specifically the accessdatasource and the droplist.

Sure, gimme a second.

Funny thing is that I read I should put my Code Behind into the DDL_Selecting Event. I do not even get that option.

DDL:
        <asp:DropDownList ID="DDLTables" runat="server"
            AutoPostBack="True"
            DataSourceID="PermittedAccessList_DS"
            DataTextField="TableSecurity"
            DataValueField="TableSecurity"
            AppendDataBoundItems="True"
            style="text-align:
            center" Width="250px">
            <asp:ListItem Text="Select a Program to Access" Value="" />
        </asp:DropDownList>

DataSource:
<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"  />
        </SelectParameters>
    </asp:AccessDataSource>

Code Behind:
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Dim sUserID As String = "David"
        PermittedAccessList_DS.SelectParameters(0).DefaultValue = sUserID
        DDLTables.DataBind()
End Sub

DOESN'T WORK

OK - So the DDL doesn't have the SELECTING event, it is the data source. Duh!

But, even when I put the code like this, it doesn't work.....

    Private Sub PermittedAccessList_DS_Selecting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.SqlDataSourceSelectingEventArgs) Handles PermittedAccessList_DS.Selecting
        Dim sUserID As String = "David"
        PermittedAccessList_DS.SelectParameters(0).DefaultValue = sUserID
    End Sub

WOW - I figuredout the problem.

How stupid is this?

Cannot use a complex query with a join. When I change the Select Command Query to be a simple statement "Select [Table], [Username] from [tlkp_UserSecurity] WHERE (Username = ?) ORDER BY t[Table]" then everything works fine.

No error message. No nothing. Just didn't work. What a waste of time.
