I am trying to get everyones name and number from the SIDPERS database  that exists in my SQL table with a intRosterID = 4.  When I querry this code below, it gives me everyone in the SIDPERS database, it does not show only the people in my SQL table.  Any ideas on how to tweak this?
SELECT RTRIM(SUBSTRING(GR_ABBR_CODE, 1, 3)) + ' ' + RTRIM(NAME_IND) AS NAME, SSN_SM 
FROM OPENQUERY(SIDPERS, 'SELECT s.GR_ABBR_CODE, s.SSN_SM, p.NAME_IND FROM PERS_SVCMBR_TBL s, PERS_PERSON_TBL p
WHERE s.SSN_SM = p.SSN_SM') WHERE EXISTS (SELECT intMemberID FROM tblMember WHERE intRosterID = 4) ORDER BY SSN_SM

>WHERE EXISTS (SELECT intMemberID FROM tblMember WHERE intRosterID = 4) ORDER BY SSN_SM
will only check if there is at least 1 row with that condition, it does not link to the returned rows actually.

the condition on SSN_SM is guessed... you might need to change the condition as needed
SELECT RTRIM(SUBSTRING(GR_ABBR_CODE, 1, 3)) + ' ' + RTRIM(NAME_IND) AS NAME, SSN_SM 
FROM OPENQUERY(SIDPERS, 'SELECT s.GR_ABBR_CODE, s.SSN_SM, p.NAME_IND FROM PERS_SVCMBR_TBL s, PERS_PERSON_TBL p
WHERE s.SSN_SM = p.SSN_SM') sq
WHERE EXISTS (SELECT null FROM tblMember m WHERE m.intRosterID = 4 AND m.intMemberID = sq.SSN_SM ) 
ORDER BY sq.SSN_SM
