Query question

Last Modified: 2018-01-12

I am trying to run a query in code behind, because the query is simple, I do not want to create a sp just for that. Here is my code. It runs well without a parameter.

        SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["conn"].ToString());

        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("SELECT CategoryName from Category ORDER BY CategoryName="  + Session["sCMID"], con);

        SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
        DataTable table = new DataTable();

        ContactName.DataSource = table;
        ContactName.DataValueField = "CategoryName";
        ContactName.DataTextField = "CategoryName";

The result will be loaded into a dropdown list.  thAnks
