Hi Saritha,

Let me understand you issue first.. You have assigned some values in to Array list and you did bind that value to Dropdown. You are also able to insert those values in to Db. When you try to read that values, you don't see your db values, instead you see array list values.
is that correct? if so, you may need to clear the array list and see if you are assigning values to drop down in every post back using page_load.
Arraylistobject.items.clear() will clear the array list.

if you are using array instead of arraylist, please use array list. If not working, please explain your issue once again clearly.
