you can have your select query return 2 values: an int and a string:

s = "select distinct id, cast(id as varchar) as IDString from mststudents where deoflag=0 order by id"

when you add your dummy value:

        newCustomersRow("IDString") = "--Select TID--"
        newCustomersRow("id") = "0"

and when you set your combo:

            .DisplayMember = "IDString"
0
