SELECT INDEX of drop down list

I'm trying to automatically select the drop down list item....keeps bombing out

 System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
private void usp_CheckNamedUsers_Selected(Object sender, SqlDataSourceStatusEventArgs e)
      {
		// grab our return value from the stored procedure
        string str_Test = e.Command.Parameters["@bit_ReturnValue"].Value.ToString();

        // if this user doesn't exist in the DB direct them to the new user page
        if(str_Test != "True")
          Response.Redirect("/Recruitment/UserInformation.aspx");

        if (!IsPostBack)
        {
            DataView dvw_DataView_usp_Requisition_SELECT = (DataView)usp_Requisition_SELECT.Select(DataSourceSelectArguments.Empty);
            foreach (DataRowView drv_DataRowView in dvw_DataView_usp_Requisition_SELECT)
            {
                // textboxes and labels  
                // cal_RequestDate.Text           = drv_DataRowView["dtm_RequestDate"].ToString();

            }
        }
        ddl_DepartmentLocation.Items.FindByValue(txt_LocationQueued.Text.ToString()).Selected = true;
      }
