Javascript drop down list change selected item programatically

Last Modified: 2013-12-08
I have some client side javascript (IE6 .Net 2.0 VS2005) that is extracting a couple of values from a data grid using a client side on click event - the two values represent the text and id of an item that can be found in a drop down list.
I want to know how I can change the selected item in the drop down list using the two values that I have. Any help on this would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
