You can use the IN clause.

select a.* from miscchg A
where (a.ashpnbr, a.abldngd) in ( select b.ashpnbr, b.abldngd) from
miscchgtmp B)

Can this be accomplished in one SQL step?

select a.* from miscchg A, miscchgtmp B
where a.ASHPNBR = b.ashpnbr

Maybe using "IN"? But that only works with one column, not two as I

Joel -

It appears that your question has already been answered, but I wanted to
inform you that it is possible use the "IN" clause with multiple columns in
a subselect, so here is another way:

Select * From miscchg
In (Select distinct ashpnbr, abldngd From miscchgtmp)
