Are you calling FillDropDown() in the Page_Load event handler? if so does it look like this:

if(!IsPostBack)
{
    FillDropDown();
}

Thanks.

private void DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{

      TxtEditTaskCode.Text = DropDownList1.SelectedValue;
      TxtEditTaskDesc.Text = DropDownList1.SelectedItem.Text;
}

1. Why hit database when you already have the data in the drop down.
2. DropDownList1.SelectedItem.Text is the 'Description' DropDownList1.SelectedValue is the 'Code'.
