Passing drop down box values to web item "table" to filter table contents


I am trying to pass "drop down box" values to table. this is what i am doing.

i want the report not to be executed before making selections out of dropdown box.

I've 2 data providers one for dropdown box(DATAPROVIDER_1) and one for table (DATAPROVIDER_2).

DATAPROVIDER_2 is empty without any query.

based on the drop down box selection, I am resetting the DATAPROVIDER_2 to DATAPROVIDER_1 and also trying to pass drop down values to table.

I could able to reset the DATAPROVIDER_2 but i am not having any luck to pass the drop down selected values.

after i select a value from drop down box, data provider (DATAPROVIDER_2) is being reset and all the values are being displayed in the table but i want only records of those drop down selected value.

I appreciate if you can help me. here is the code.
