On one of my create forms I have a select-list that is populated with values from another list.

Now, when the user selects an option from the select-list and saves.. My goal is to change the status of the selected option in the original list. Now, 'Status' is a column that is a choice column and it has 3 options (Active, Deactivated, Assigned). When the user saves the form, I want to change the value of the 'Status' to Assigned.

Here is what I have:

var listItemData = {
    "Status" : "Assigned"

var requestHeaders = {
    'X-RequestDigest': $("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val(),
    "accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
    "content-type": "application/json;odata=verbose",
    "IF-MATCH": "*",

// Second ajax call - 'post', once the serial number has been proven to exist, will get that item and change the status to 'Assigned'
    url: siteurl + "/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('SerialNumber')/items(" + itemId + ")",
    method: "PATCH",
    data: JSON.stringify(listItemData),
    headers: requestHeaders,
    success: function(data, textStatus, xhr){
    error: function(error){
        alert("Error " + JSON.stringify(error));

When this runs, I am receiving a run-time error:

Any idea as to how I can get this to work?
