Hi,

I am using this in ASP.net

                    <asp:DropDownList ID="FollowUpUser" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" DataTextField="username" DataValueField="username" AppendDataBoundItems="true">                                                                          
                     </asp:DropDownList>            
                     
                    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:conn %>"
                    SelectCommand="SELECT username from users where system='Asset' order by username">
                    </asp:SqlDataSource>  


I have checked that the value is in the table, but I am getting

'FollowUpUser' has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items.
Parameter name: value

Is there a way to avoid this error?  thanks

Try adding by default value :

<asp:DropDownList ID="FollowUpUser" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" DataTextField="username" DataValueField="username" AppendDataBoundItems="true">                                                                          
<asp:ListItem Text="Select" Value="" />
</asp:DropDownList>
