due to the codes below. why?

                cmd = new OleDbCommand("SELECT a.id,a.fld_name FROM ite1 a,ite2 b where ite2_name=b.fld_name and b.fld_name=@ite2 order by 1", conn);

                cmd.Parameters.Add("@ite2", OleDbType.VarChar).Value = ite2_ddl.SelectedValue;
                reader = cmd.ExecuteReader();
                ite1_ddl.Items.Add(new ListItem("Please select", "0"));
                while (reader.Read())
                {
                    ite1_ddl.Items.Add(new ListItem(reader[1].ToString(), reader[0].ToString()));

Yes, I mean that this line:

ite2_ddl.SelectedValue = Convert.ToString(reader["ite2_id"]);

It's (probably) causing the error, you need the reader["ite2_id"] value on your DropDownList to be able to set as SelectedValue

Are you pretty sure that in those code the exception is being raised?, I can't see any assignment to your ite2_ddl control

Many thanks all.
Jorge,
here is the part I can see in the whole project, that is having an assignment to ite2_ddl.
                    if (reader["ite2_id"] != null)
                    {
                        if (reader["ite2_id"] != DBNull.Value)
                        {
                            ite2_ddl.ClearSelection();
                            ite2_ddl.SelectedValue = Convert.ToString(reader["ite2_id"]);
                        }
                    }

I think that ite2_ddl doen't have ite2_id in its values

No, ite2_id is the column which is from another transaction table.
