update Orders_Test set
Fulfilled = "NA",
AWP = NULL
WHERE FulFilled <> "NA" AND (GetDate() - OrderDate BETWEEN 60 AND 10000)

This is the statement I am trying to use but to no avail, I am assuming the date function is not right.

GetDate() - Orderdate will return a date, not an interval.  You want to use the DateDiff function:

...
WHERE FulFilled <> 'NA' And (DateDiff(d,OrderDate, GetDate()) BETWEEN 60 AND 10000)

Here is the sp but it still doesn't work.

CREATE procedure sp_Tracking_Orders_Date_Update
as

DECLARE @error int

SELECT @error=0

BEGIN Transaction mytrans

update Orders_Test set
Fulfilled = 'NA',
AWP = NULL
WHERE FulFilled <> 'NA' AND (DateDiff(d,OrderDate, GetDate()) BETWEEN 60 AND 10000)

select @error=@@error
IF @error<>0
BEGIN
ROLLBACK TRANSACTION mytrans
END


COMMIT TRANSACTION mytrans

RETURN @error

In the DateDiff function, d is a flag indicating that you want to compare the number of days (as opposed to weeks, months, etc.)

You may be having a problem with the other part of your selection criteria.  If the value in Fulfilled is Null, your test will not return those records.  Also note that if you Rollback the transaction, you don't want to commit it later.  Try this instead:

BEGIN Transaction mytrans

update Orders_Test set
Fulfilled = 'NA',
AWP = NULL
WHERE (Fulfilled is Null OR FulFilled <> 'NA') AND (DateDiff(d,OrderDate, GetDate()) BETWEEN 60 AND 10000)

select @error=@@error
IF @error<>0
BEGIN
ROLLBACK TRANSACTION mytrans
END
ELSE
BEGIN
COMMIT TRANSACTION mytrans
END


One more possibility is to try this select:

WHERE OrderDate Between GetDate()-60 AND GetDate()-10000
