How do I use a mouse click to select a particular dropdown option?

Hi, Thanks in advance to for the help!!!!!

When the page loads, "Application Inventory" is selected by default ---
I want to use a mouse.click to select "Systems Compliance",
I'm clueless as I don't write javascript, but would really appreciate the assistance. Thanks a MILLION!

[HTML]<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function __doPostBack(eventTarget, eventArgument) {
var theform;
if (window.navigator.appName.toLowerCase().indexOf("m icrosoft") > -1) {
theform = document.CriteriaBar;
else {
theform = document.forms["CriteriaBar"];
theform.__EVENTTARGET.value = eventTarget.split("$").join(":");
theform.__EVENTARGUMENT.value = eventArgument;
// -->

<table cellSpacing="0" cellPadding="2" width="100%" border="0">
<td noWrap align="center"><span class="ReportSelectLabel">Select Report</span>
<select name="_ddlReports" onchange="javascript:OnChange();__doPostBack('_ddl Reports','')" language="javascript" id="_ddlReports" class="ReportSelect" style="height:24px;width:100%;">

<option selected="selected" value="Application Inventory">Application Inventory</option>

selected="selected"!!!! The option which has this attribute would be the selected by default.

Any way if you want to simulate an event :

createEventObject / createEvent and dispatchEvent / fireEvent
