Nested Query Problem

The nested COUNT query does not recognize a.CustomerID, it comes up asking for that. What am I doing wrong?
INSERT INTO ltblPIFItems(CustomerID, BusinessUnit, ItemID, LastActivity, NumberOfOtherItems, DebtType) 
SELECT a.CustomerID, a.BusinessUnit, a.ItemID, a.LastActivity, b.NumberOfOtherItems, a.DebtType 
FROM ltblAllItems a, (SELECT COUNT(*) - 1 AS NumberOfOtherItems FROM ltblAllItems c WHERE a.CustomerID = c.CustomerID) AS b 
WHERE a.Balance = 0

change to this:
INSERT INTO ltblPIFItems(CustomerID, BusinessUnit, ItemID, LastActivity, NumberOfOtherItems, DebtType) 
SELECT a.CustomerID, a.BusinessUnit, a.ItemID, a.LastActivity
, (SELECT COUNT(*) - 1 AS NumberOfOtherItems FROM ltblAllItems c WHERE a.CustomerID = c.CustomerID) 
, a.DebtType 
FROM ltblAllItems a
WHERE a.Balance = 0

you could have done like this:
INSERT INTO ltblPIFItems(CustomerID, BusinessUnit, ItemID, LastActivity, NumberOfOtherItems, DebtType) 
SELECT a.CustomerID, a.BusinessUnit, a.ItemID, a.LastActivity
, b.NumberOfOtherItems 
, a.DebtType 
FROM ltblAllItems a
INNER JOIN ( SELECT CustomerID, COUNT(*) - 1 AS NumberOfOtherItems 
              FROM ltblAllItems c 
            GROUP BY CustomerID 
           ) b
  ON (a.CustomerID = c.CustomerID)
WHERE a.Balance = 0
