How do I do an select in update.

THe query
UPDATE vrts_drs_order_header h
SET h.account_id = a.account_id
FROM account_profile a
WHERE h.customer_id = a.customer_id

fails with the error --
FROM ACCOUNT_PROFILE WHERE
*
vrts_drs_order_header.customer_id =ACCOUNT_PROFILE.customer_id


This means that the query is syntatically wrong ... SQL is not expecting a from clause there. Isn't the following the update syntax defn.
UPDATE [[ ONLY ]] table SET col = expression [[, ...]] [[ FROM fromlist ]] [[ WHERE condition ]]

Please help.

regards
Tarun
