i read this line.. and this was realy a waste of script.. i mean this line
$_POST['submit']== "Update Entire Account"
why this line always show up every if line?? i don't know what your script
looks like.. but i sure you this line is waste of typing.

from i read above.. when you click update every account. it respond to do
function in this if line
if ( $_POST['submit'] == "Update Subscriptions" OR $_POST['submit'] ==
"Update Entire Account" ) {

from this point i suggest to not use submit as condition to begin a
function. are your page contain a lot submit button??
fyi.. i'm indonesian and i'm not good on english.. so forgive me. what i
mean about function in here was.. something below the if

 if ( $_POST['submit'] == "Update Subscriptions" OR $_POST['submit'] ==>
"Update Entire Account" ) {
//this where i mean function //
