Your tables of city, state and country must have a id field. When you are binding the data from the database then bind the value field of drop down to the id field and save the id of state or country in the database. When you edit the record then fetch the record, bind the drop down with all the data(state/country) and write one line
dropdown1.selectedvalue=dt.rows[0]["stateid"].tostring();
