You need to set the data member's name. By default when you first fill a table it is named "Table" but this is unreliable. Try using this method:

private void Bind()
    {
      Query = "SELECT * FROM madExcept";
      cmd = new SqlCommand(Query, conn);
      SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
      DataSet ds = new DataSet();
      da.Fill(ds);
      ds.Tables[0].TableName = "MyTable";
      this.DropDownLanguages.DataMember = "MyTable";
      this.DropDownLanguages.DataTextField = "UploadIp"; //column from query
      this.DropDownLanguages.DataValueField = "Version"; //column from query
      DropDownLanguages.DataSource = ds;
      DropDownLanguages.DataBind();
      conn.Close();
    }

sandeep,

It just lets you hold associated values in the combobox. Image if your "DataTextField" was "Customer Name" and your "DataValueField" was "Customer ID". With this you could have two customers named "John Smith" and you would be able to distinguish which John Smith they selected in the combo box.

string sText = this.DropDownLanguages.SelectedItem.Text;
      string sValue = this.DropDownLanguages.SelectedItem.Value;
