why is my selectedvalue on dropdown not selecting option that is already in the database?  
list shows but nothing is selected.  

          <asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Whse" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center">
                                                          <ItemTemplate>
                                                                <asp:Label id="lblWhse" runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.whse") %>'>
                                                                </asp:Label>
                                                          </ItemTemplate>
                                                          <EditItemTemplate>

You need to use the bind command to bind it to the value being returned from the database.

<asp:DropDownList id="lstWhse" runat="server" Width="63px"   AppendDataBoundItems="true" DataValueField="whse" DataTextField="whse" selectedValue=<%# Bind(mydatabasefield)%> CssClass="textbox1">
