 public static List<string> ExecuteReader(string commandtext)
        {
            List<string> sVal = new List<string>();
            try
            {

                {
                    cnn.Open();
                    using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand())
                    {
                        cmd.Connection = cnn;
