Update one table from another table in the same SQL Server

I have two Tables with the same name, in two differrent database on the same MS-SQL Server 2000, and I wanted to update one colomn in one table from the other database.

X1   Y1   Z1

X2   Y2   Z2

So, the Query should looks like
Update Z2 from Z1.

I hope I make it clear for you guys, please let me know.
