Here's my code:

<script language="JavaScript"><!--
function MM_jumpMenu(targ,selObj,restore){ //v3.0
  eval(targ+".location='"+selObj.options[selObj.selectedIndex].value+"'");
  if (restore) selObj.selectedIndex=0;
}
// -->
</script>

...and here's the HTML:

      <select name="select154" size="1" onchange="MM_jumpMenu('top',this,1)">                  <option value="#" selected>MyTen BI Pages</option>                                    
      <option value="https://mytenbi.symbion.com/dashboard/main.php">MyTen BI Page</option>                                                
            <option value="">_____________________</option>
            </select>

Works great, but every page opens up in the same window. I need the equivalent to target="_blank."

How?

Instead of eval(...)
 try
window.open(selObj.options[selObj.selectedIndex].value, "_blank");
