I'm not sure what you mean. If you mean you have four tables with
similar fields, and you want to SELECT data from all of them at once,
then you can create a dynamic compound table that will contain all
the data, and SELECT from that. eg:

          SELECT * FROM MyTable1
       UNION ALL
          SELECT * FROM MyTable2
       UNION ALL
          SELECT * FROM MyTable3
       UNION ALL
          SELECT * FROM MyTable4;

SELECT * FROM MyTables WHERE <insert your criteria here>;

Or, if you mean that the result of SELECTing in one table becomes the
basis of the SELECT in the next, that is something like the sequence:

value1 = SELECT ResultField1 FROM MyTable1 WHERE SearchField1 =

value2 = SELECT ResultField2 FROM MyTable2 WHERE SearchField2 =

value3 = SELECT ResultField3 FROM MyTable3 WHERE SearchField3 =

value4 = SELECT ResultField4 FROM MyTable4 WHERE SearchField4 =

Then I think you could do it in one action by:

SELECT ResultField4
       LEFT JOIN
             ON SearchField2 = ResultField1
       LEFT JOIN
             ON SearchField3 = ResultField2
       LEFT JOIN
             ON SearchField4 = ResultField3
       SearchField1 = <initialValue>;
