    Hi Ansari

      I have identified the problem in your querey. Actually its basic problem.

    In the WHERE clause your not mentioned any field to validate

    As per you query you can only use in the WHERE clause vRefTable [Because you are selecting vRefTable filed only in the subquerey]

    WHERE vRefTable= or IN or NOT IN or etc...

    I hope you can understand where you have made problem in your querey.

     Good Luck
