Try not using numbers as the session key.  I have never heard of that before, but for som reason when I downloaded your cod on my server it worked when I changed the keys from numbers.  As a quick exampl change your $_SESSION['100']="TESTING123"; to $_SESSION['thf']="TESTING123";

If you need additional help let me know.

Here I cleaned up the code a bit for you, but you need to readd your database stuff.  This is what I did to be able to troubleshoot, mostly just cleaning it up so I could read it.

<?php
session_cache_limiter('nocache');
session_cache_expire (40);
session_start();

error_reporting(E_ALL);
$errors=array();

if (isset($_POST['order2'])) {
      unset($_POST['submit']);
      foreach($_POST as $key => $value) {
            if(!is_numeric($value)) {
                  $errors[]="Your changes are not numeric";
            }
      }
      if(count($_POST) != count(array_unique($_POST))) {
            //there are some duplicates. Use a foreach to detect them.
            $errors[]="Your changes are invalid";
      }
      if (count($errors)==0) {
            // Array elements are NOT unique OR not integer - you can use $a_unique_ints to see all the unique ints available.
            if(isset($_POST['order2'])) {
                  for($j=1;$j<count($_POST) + 1;$j++) {
                        /* $a="order" . $j;
                        echo "a:" . $_POST[$a];
                        echo "<br><br>";
                        $query4="update deedtable set order1= '" . mysql_real_escape_string($_POST[$a]) . "' where order1= '" . mysql_real_escape_string($_SESSION[$j]) . "'";
                        $result4= mysql_query($query4); */
                  }
            }
      }
}

echo <<<END

I didn't use your script, but I went back to my script and added an "a" in the sessions because you suggested to make them not only just numbers. Everything started working.

Thanks a lot.
