What is the correct jquery syntax to assign (or select a value) a value to a dropdown field?
I am using SharePoint Designer 2007.

SharePoint Form Dropdown field code:

<tr class="ISRStatus">
	<td width="25%" class="ms-vb">
		<b>ISR Status:</b>
	<td width="75%" class="ms-vb">
		<SharePoint:FormField runat="server" id="fXX{$Pos}" ControlMode="New" FieldName="ISR_x0020_Status" __designer:bind="{ddwrt:DataBind('i',concat('fXX',$Pos),'Value','ValueChanged','ID',ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@ISR_x0020_Status')}" />

Page Rendered Code:

	<td width="25%" class="ms-vb">
		<b>ISR Status:</b>
	<td width="75%" class="ms-vb">
	<span dir="none">
		<select name="XXX...DropDownChoice" id="XXX...._DropDownChoice"
title="ISR Status" class="ms-RadioText">

			<option selected="selected" value="ISR Created">ISR Created</option>
			<option value="Approval Review">Approval Review</option>
			<option value="LOE Analysis">LOE Analysis</option>

	</span>Status of ISR

jquery assignment code:

$("tr.ISRStatus select").selected("Approval Review");
I have also tried:
$("tr.ISRStatus select").val("Approval Review");
$("tr.ISRStatus select").selected.val("Approval Review");

Neither line of jquery appears to work. The value remains defaulted to "ISR Created".

Any help is appreciated!
