subquery help

P: n/a
I tried what's below, seemed OK, so I replaced an "IN" for the "=" in
the subquery below because of the subquery's error message. I thought
w/"IN" I'd get three (3) records returned as expected. But when I tried
"IN" I got my entire DB returned - I don't show that below - it kept
scrolling so I aborted it. What did I do wrong? Seems like the inner
just returns three recs. and should match-up w/the outer for three recs.
too. I'm using 4.1. Thanks, any help arrpeciated. Lee G.
