MySQL update based on data from another table

I need to update a field in a table based on a field from another table. I am only familiar with using Joins with a Select statement so I know my syntext is wrong... can someone please show me the correct syntext.
Update HanStores T SET T.AuditCompany = 'WRP' 
Left outer join HanAR T1 On T.StoreNum = T1.StoreID
Where T1.Auditor LIKE 'Carl%'

Thanks for the responce.... I'm still getting a syntext error
"#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'FROM HanStores T
Left outer join
      HanAR T1 On T.StoreNum = T1.StoreID
' at line 3
"

I'm using MySQL 5.0

a OUTER join  does not make any sense in your example..
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/update.html
Update HanStores T, HanAR T1  
  SET T.AuditCompany = 'WRP' 
WHERE T.StoreNum = T1.StoreID
 and T1.Auditor LIKE 'Carl%'
