This must have something to do with the multiple table involvement.

I modified my 'insert' command to include the updated field on the 
initial insert.

    INSERT INTO tmp_rxpurge (rxnum,dt_wrt,dt_lastfill,b_purge)
    SELECT "RXNUM","DATE",rf.dt_lastfill,'f'
    FROM rx
    LEFT JOIN  (SELECT "RXNUM" AS rxnum, Max("DATE")  as dt_lastfill
    FROM transactions GROUP BY "RXNUM")
                 as rf on rf.rxnum=rx."RXNUM"

Then - created three additional update steps ... they all worked via the 
ODBC connector...

 1. UPDATE tmp_rxpurge SET dt_lastact=dt_wrt
 2. UPDATE tmp_rxpurge SET dt_lastact=dt_lastfill where dt_lastfill IS
    NOT NULL and dt_lastfill > dt_lastact
 3. UPDATE tmp_rxpurge SET b_purge='t' where dt_lastact < '2010-01-01'

I'm still puzzled why the first method didn't work.
