I have a program where the dropdown list originally gets populated in HTML. When the user selects a particular item from another list the first list changes its contents. I would like the first list to revert back to its original state when any other item is selected that doesn't match the specified criteria.
// This creates the original list in HTML
<h1>CFDA #:</h1>
	<div id="CFDA_Number">
	<Select name="CFDANumber">
	<option value="00000">00000 - No CDFA</option>
//If a user selects "02-Federal Funds" from a 2nd DDL then GetCFDA() is called which repopulates new items into the original DDL. If anything other than "02-Federal Funds"  is slected then I want to rever back to only having "00000 - No CDFA" in the original list
var CFDA_NumberText = document.getElementById("CFDA_Number");
if (rtSource == "02-Federal Funds"){
else {
//The lines below don't work but they were some things I have tried
CFDA_NumberText.innerHTML = "00000 - No CDFA";
CFDA_NumberText.innerHTML = document.getElementById("CFDA_Number");
