UPDATE query with SELECT TOP x records from UNION

I have the following query below that I am trying to execute but does not seem to be working properly.

The query from "SELECT TOP 150 ReceiptKey FROM" line and down executes perfectly in under 1 second, but once I add the update statement, my computer goes haywire and is running at 100% CPU with no results even after minutes of processing.

I'm guessing something strange is happening, but I'm not quite sure why.

Also, "SortReceipts()" is a VBA function that I wrote that returns a string value back to my query

UPDATE tblOpenReceipts SET Reworked = 'TEST' WHERE ReceiptKey IN(

SELECT TOP 150 ReceiptKey FROM 

(SELECT ReceiptKey, SpecialAssignment, GLDate, SortReceipts(ReceiptNumber, ReceiptBatch) AS SortField 
FROM tblOpenReceipts INNER JOIN tblSpecialAssignment
ON tblOpenReceipts.SpecialAssignment = tblSpecialAssignment.Assignment
WHERE EmpID = 'Stmarine' AND TimeClosed IS NULL 

UNION ALL

SELECT ReceiptKey, SpecialAssignment, GLDate, SortReceipts(ReceiptNumber, ReceiptBatch) 
FROM tblOpenReceipts INNER JOIN tblDCToFaxRegion
ON LEFT(tblOpenReceipts.BankAcctNum,3) = tblDCToFaxRegion.ServingLocation
WHERE PaymentMethod = 'JV STORE IMPORT' AND TimeClosed IS NULL 
AND SpecialAssignment IS NULL AND TimeAssigned IS NULL AND FaxInt = 1  

UNION ALL

SELECT ReceiptKey, SpecialAssignment, GLDate, SortReceipts(ReceiptNumber, ReceiptBatch) 
FROM tblOpenReceipts 
WHERE PaymentMethod LIKE '*AUTOLKBOX' AND TimeClosed IS NULL
AND SpecialAssignment IS NULL AND TimeAssigned IS NULL 
ORDER BY SpecialAssignment DESC, GLDate ASC, SortField ASC))

Let me see if I can, I would have to strip a lot of data out before I did. I will have to get back to it later tonight.
Looks like there might just be a syntax error in capricorn's solution. Try this.
UPDATE T
SET T.Reworked = 'TEST' 
FROM tblOpenReceipts 
  Inner Join
(SELECT TOP 150 ReceiptKey FROM 

(SELECT ReceiptKey, SpecialAssignment, GLDate, SortReceipts(ReceiptNumber, ReceiptBatch) AS SortField 
FROM tblOpenReceipts INNER JOIN tblSpecialAssignment
ON tblOpenReceipts.SpecialAssignment = tblSpecialAssignment.Assignment
WHERE EmpID = 'Stmarine' AND TimeClosed IS NULL 

UNION ALL

SELECT ReceiptKey, SpecialAssignment, GLDate, SortReceipts(ReceiptNumber, ReceiptBatch) 
FROM tblOpenReceipts INNER JOIN tblDCToFaxRegion
ON LEFT(tblOpenReceipts.BankAcctNum,3) = tblDCToFaxRegion.ServingLocation
WHERE PaymentMethod = 'JV STORE IMPORT' AND TimeClosed IS NULL 
AND SpecialAssignment IS NULL AND TimeAssigned IS NULL AND FaxInt = 1  

UNION ALL

SELECT ReceiptKey, SpecialAssignment, GLDate, SortReceipts(ReceiptNumber, ReceiptBatch) 
FROM tblOpenReceipts 
WHERE PaymentMethod LIKE '*AUTOLKBOX' AND TimeClosed IS NULL
AND SpecialAssignment IS NULL AND TimeAssigned IS NULL 
ORDER BY SpecialAssignment DESC, GLDate ASC, SortField ASC))) T2
On T.ReceiptKey=T2.ReceiptKey

Try both T.Reworked and just Reworked as well. T.Reworked might give you another syntax error... I can't remember if thats valid, but out of force of habit I always type queries that way first. Sorry for the confusion.
