code debug, js

On a webpage, I have two list boxes with the data on display:

________________
| Group 1       |
| Group 2       |
| Group 3       |  <--  id= "group"
| Group 4       |
----------------------
________________
| Sub G 1       |
| Sub G 2       |  <--  id= "subgroup"
| Sub G 3       |
| Sub G 4       |
----------------------

I have groupData.js to add the followings:

1. Using the following arrays upload (replace) the data in both group and subgroup list boxes:

var groupNames = ["Group 1x", "Group 2x", "Group 3x", "Group 4x"];
var subgroupNames = ["Sub G  1x", "Sub G 2x", "Sub G 3x", "Sub G 4x"];

2. Upon a click on the list boxes to execute:

alert("You have clicked on group control"); or
alert("You have clicked on sub group control");

as applicable.

It doesn't quite perform. Could you please take a look at it. I am new to js and trying to understand it.

Thank you.

here you go:-

$('document').ready(function(){
$.each(groupNames,function(){
$('#group').append('</option>').text(this);
});

$.each(subgroupNames ,function(){
$('#subgroup').append('</option>').text(this);
});

$('#group').click(function(){alert('group is clicked');});
$('#subgroup').click(function(){alert('subgroup is clicked');});
});

Where and how do I include this in the html file?

Thanks,

Mike

Do I need to build this file? If so what is its content?

Where do I introduce:

var groupNames = ["Group 1x", "Group 2x", "Group 3x", "Group 4x"];
var subgroupNames = ["Sub G  1x", "Sub G 2x", "Sub G 3x", "Sub G 4x"];
