I'm not sure what you are trying to do.  Using the IN clause your sql query should only be selecting a single column to compare  the start_date to.  and.... well it is really hard to see what you are actually trying to do without some explaination.

Why not just put SELECT TOP 100 Percent ...

That's all it's asking for.
