I have a dropdownlist which I dynamically select a list item using findbytext as long as there are no special characters. One entry in the list starts with a percent symbol which I have been unable to dyncamically select. I have confirmed that there are no spaces in the list item and have hard coded the query with the string to try to find the problem. FindByText("% Increase") I believe it has something to do with the special character but have been unable to identify a method to work around this. Any help would be appreciated.
If Not ddlColumns1.Items.FindByText(strDefault) Is Nothing Then
ddlColumns1.Items.FindByText(strDefault).Selected = True
