Yes.  It is exactly the same.

However I should clarify that you can not use "in" with another select statement in access (as you can with T-SQL).

eg:  select a from tabX where a in (select a from tabY)

Will not work in access.

select a from tabX where a in (select a from tabY)

...will definitely work in Access, assuming the 'a' fields are compatible.

Ditto what Peter said; I use the IN keyword frequently in Access with a sub-select.
