need to get this right:

string getVal = ddlSNRN.SelectedValue.ToString(); //1043...N180HM
            string[] partsOfGetVal;
            partsOfGetVal = getVal.Split("...".ToCharArray());
            string sn = partsOfGetVal[0]; //1043
            string no = partsOfGetVal[1]; //

no seems to be returning nothing

You should remove the empty entries as follows:
string getVal = ddlSNRN.SelectedValue.ToString(); //1043...N180HM
string[] partsOfGetVal;
partsOfGetVal = getVal.Split("...".ToCharArray(), StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries);
string sn = partsOfGetVal[0]; //1043
string no = partsOfGetVal[1]; //

getVal.Split("...".ToCharArray());


.ToChar Array is seperating out the ... to individual "."

Removing the empty entries will work.  

The Value can be found in [3] using the current code.
