hey dude - You can use either sysobjects or information_schema.Tables of sql server to retrieve the table name from a specific database. the query will look like below
1) Select name, id from SysObjects where xtype = 'u' and name <> 'dtproperties' order by name asc
2) Select * from Information_Schema.Tables where table_type = 'base table' and table_name <> 'dtproperties'

use this query in SqlDataAdapter, then fill the data table using Fill() method of SqlDataAdapter. Now bind your combo box with data table.

I hope it will work you.

DBCommand = New SqlDataAdapter _
("Select * from Information_Schema.Tables where table_type = 'base table' and table_name <> 'dtproperties'", sqlConn)
DBCommand.Fill(datatable1)
DropDownList1.DataSource = datatable1
DropDownList1.DataBind()

explain in detail please ... i can't get what you are trying to say ? is there any issue in the query i have sent ?

dropdownlist items filled by this sentence (system.data.dataRowView)
the table name doesn't appear

oh...you need to set the DataTextField of your drop down with the column name you want to show in dropdown.

here in your case it should be "table_name" column.

so your code looks like
DropDownList1.DataSource = datatable1
DropDownList1.DataTextField = "table_name"
DropDownList1.DataBind()

thanks
it works.

cool :-)...can you please mark it as solved ?

Imports System.data.sqlclient
Imports system.data

dim objcon as new sqlconnection
dim dt as new datatable

dim str as string = " DataBase Path "

If objcon.state = connectionstate.closed()
objcon.connectionstring = str
objcon.open()
end if

dim query as string="select * from infomation_schema.tables"
dim da as new sqldataadapter(query,objcon)
da.fill(dt)

dropdownlist1.datasource = dt
dropdownlist1..datatextfield = "table_name"
dropdownlist1..databind()

objcon.close()

also you can use code below to connect to your database

"data source=.\sqlexpress;attachdbfilename=|datadirectory|\database.mdf;_
integrated security=true;user instance=true;"
