vb.net: How to use dropdownlist to resort datagrid

hello, everyone

im a newbie to asp.net, getting nut with just a simple stuff
please give me some direction
How to use dropdownlist when user select one of the method in dropdownlist
The fields inside dropdownlist are personnel_number, firstname,lastname,email.position_title

I have a datagrid that view out all my data when:
---1st time page load, user will key in firstname or lastname then result will be display in the datagrid
---2nd time,user select oneof the person in datagrid then datagrid refresh and view new data

everytime datagrid refresh and view data where default value of sorting is from DropDownList1.SelectedValue.ToString,default value is personnel_number

My question is
I want to refresh datagrid without changing data, just want to change the method of sorting
Hence, I should modify/ write my coding in DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged
unfortunately , I don't know how to write the coding.
att: I don't want lose my data once the datagrid refresh and what I want just is the different of sorting and my sql statement for 1st time and 2nd time are different
Please teach me..

You don't need a dropdown list to implement sorting on a datagrid. See this thread.
