Yes, sorry about that. But in my query  for a set of dates returned from the subquery 
I would then like to get all records that match this set of dates (ordered).

I believe this query will work and hopefully speed it up (the "IN" query is extremely 
slow)...I give this one a try:

>SELECT t1.code, t1.id, t1.date_of_service
>       (SELECT DISTINCT date_of_service
>         FROM tbl
>         WHERE xxx >= '29800' AND xxx <= '29909'
>          AND code = 'XX'
>      ) AS t2 ON (t1.date_of_service = t2.date_of_service)
> WHERE t1.client_code = 'XX'
> ORDER BY id, date_of_service;

A question I have is is the "DISTINCT" really going to help or is it just going to 
throw another sort into the mix making it slower?

Thanks for the help!
