Hi Experts

I have two tables in my database.
I want to create a script that updates one table with the values of the second table based on where the usrid matches in the where clause

I am getting errors.

[Err] 1054 - Unknown column 'companyprofile.usrid' in 'where clause'

What is the correct way to do this query?

update usrprofiles 
SET 
usrprofiles.CompanyName = companyprofile.CompanyName,
usrprofiles.CompanyID = companyprofile.CompanyID
WHERE
usrprofiles.usrid = companyprofile.usrid
