How do I update a field of one DataTable from another Datatable?

I have 2 Datatables

Datatable #1:
UPC
Quantity
Price
NewPrice

Datatable #2
UPC
NewPrice


I want to update DataTable #1 with the NewPrice column from Datatable #2 when the UPCs of the 2 tables match. I'm interested in the exact code (for statement?) that will generate the results.

Assuming dt1 is the table to be updated and dt2 is where the new values are coming from - and that UPC is set as the primary key for both - you'd want something like:
foreach (DataRow row in dt2.Rows)
{
    dt1.Rows.Find(row["UPC"])["NewPrice"] = row["NewPrice"];
}
