ASP dataset - load into Javascript Array

I have a simple ASP recordset being returned that I create a table from with a checkbox in the final column.

At the same time I wish to store the City_ID and City_Name values into a multi dimensional array in Javascript.

Once the values are into the array I will be looking at a method of searching that array for City_Name.  So eg if I typed in Paris - as long as the item was in the array - I would get returned the ID for Paris (which I would then automatically check the checkbox for that ID)

So in short - I need to add the Recordset items of City_ID and City_Name into a 2 dimensional array.
Then I need a method or example of how I would search for a string in that array based on City_Name that would return the corresponding City ID.

I can do this on a VB side easily but Javascript is not really my key area so your help is appreciated
<table class="data" id="tblTrips" sort="yes">

              	<tr>

                    <th>ID</th><th>Location</th><th>Select</th>

                </tr>

                <% 		

                    Do While Not RsX.EOF 

                %>

                

                <tr>

                  <td width="75"><% Response.Write RsX("City_ID") %> </td>

                    <td><% Response.Write RsX("City_Name") %> </td>            

                    <td align="center">

                      <input name="<% Response.Write RsX("City_Name") %>" type="checkbox" id="<% Response.Write "cbx_" & RsX("City_ID")%>" value="<% Response.Write RsX("City_ID") %>" onclick="javascript:loopForm();" />

                    </td>

               </tr>

                   

               <% 

                    RsX.MoveNext		

                    Loop

               %>

                                        

              </table>

Maybe this little example will help you. Never used it.
<html><head><title>Test</title>

</head><body>

<script type="text/javascript">

var Customer = new Array();
 

Customer[0] = new Object();

Customer[0]["Lastname"] = "Miller";

Customer[0]["Firstname"] = "Jack";

Customer[0]["City"] = "New York City";
 

Customer[1] = new Object();

Customer[1]["Lastname"] = "Schneider";

Customer[1]["Firstname"] = "Bob";

Customer[1]["City"] = "Dallas";
 

for (var i = 0; i < Customer.length; i++) {

  document.write("<dl><dt>Customer " + (i + 1) + "<\/dt>");

  for (var CustomerProperty in Customer[i])

    document.write("<dd>" + CustomerProperty + ": " + Customer[i][CustomerProperty] + "<\/dd>");

  document.write("<\/dl>");

}

</script>

</body></html>

unfortunately that doesn't really cover how I add the array values from the asp.

As for my example:
<script type="text/javascript">

var Customer = new Array();

<%

i = 0

Do While Not objRs.EOF

  %>

  Customer[<% = i %>] = new Object();

  Customer[<% = i %>]["Lastname"] = <% = objRs("Lastname") %>;

  Customer[<% = i %>]["Firstname"] = <% = objRs("Firstname") %>;

  Customer[<% = i %>]["City"] = <% = objRs("City") %>;

  <%

  objRs.MoveNext

  i = i + 1
 

Loop

%>

</script>
