DataSet ds2 = sql.getds("select * from profile_category ");
ddlprofilecategory.DataSource = ds2;
ddlprofilecategory.DataTextField = "profile";
ddlprofilecategory.DataValueField = "profile_id";
ddlprofilecategory.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("--Select Profile--", "0"));


<div id="myModaltoallinterview" class="modal fade" role="dialog">
    <div class="modal-dialog">
        <!-- Modal content-->
        <div class="modal-content"> <div class="modal-body" > <div class="col-md-12" >
