How can I re-write the following query so that it updates the ITEMLOC.AVERAGEUNITCOST = ITEM.COSTLASTPAID where COSTLASTPAID<>0 and AVERAGEUNITCOST=0?


select item.itemnum,costlastpaid,locationnum, itemloc.averageunitcost from "ITEM"
inner join itemloc on item.itemnum=itemloc.itemnum
where costlastpaid<>0 and itemloc.averageunitcost=0
