At the most rudimentary...
<select onchange="doIt()" ...>
document.formname.elementname.value='some text value';

Nikki is correct, as an addendum this example would insert the value of the select box into the text field.
i have 'yes' and 'no' in the list. I only want the text to be inserted in the textbox when 'no' is selected. how would i do this?
