Please review code below.   I need to sort the data in dropdown lists for "CondBY" and "InspBy" in "ASCENDING ORDER" or alphabetical order.   I need assistance with this code.

 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (!Page.IsPostBack)
        {
            FillDropdown(CondBY);
            FillDropdown(InspBy1);

        }

    }

        con.Open();
        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("select * from EmpData", con);
        SqlDataAdapter dap = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
        DataSet ds = new DataSet();
        dap.Fill(ds);
        ddl.DataSource = ds;
        ddl.DataTextField = "Name1";//Database table filed name for display in dropdown
        ddl.DataValueField = "EmpNo";//display in textbox when select dropdown field
        ddl.DataBind();

    }

    protected void CondBY_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        EmpAP.Text = CondBY.SelectedValue.ToString();// get value form dropdown

    }
    protected void InspBy1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        EmpAP1.Text = InspBy1.SelectedValue.ToString();// get value form dropdown
    
 
    }

}

If you are getting that data from the database, then you could sort it there.
