Hi,

I didn't check, but try this :
SELECT     tbl_PoAproval.FistAproval, tbl_PoAproval.FistAprovalDate, tbl_PoAproval.SecondAproval, tbl_PoAproval.SecondAprovalDate, tbl_PoAproval.ThirdAprovalDate,
tbl_PoAproval.ThirdAproval, tbl_PoAproval.PONumber, 
FirstApprovalEmployee.FirstName,
SecondApprovalEmployee.FirstName,
ThirdApprovalEmployee.FirstName

FROM         tbl_PoAproval INNER JOIN
    Employees as FirstApprovalEmployee ON tbl_PoAproval.FistAproval = FirstApprovalEmployee.EmployeeID
INNER JOIN
    Employees as SecondApprovalEmployee ON tbl_PoAproval.SecondAproval = SecondApprovalEmployee.EmployeeID
INNER JOIN
    Employees as ThirdApprovalEmployee ON tbl_PoAproval.ThirdAproval = ThirdApprovalEmployee.EmployeeID

WHERE     (tbl_PoAproval.PONumber = 'WA-011075')

YOu need to join the same table again 3 times , Just changing naming convetions to better understand

SELECT     tbl_PoAproval.FistAproval, tbl_PoAproval.FistAprovalDate, tbl_PoAproval.SecondAproval, tbl_PoAproval.SecondAprovalDate, tbl_PoAproval.ThirdAprovalDate,
tbl_PoAproval.ThirdAproval, tbl_PoAproval.PONumber,
FirstApprovalEmployee.FirstName as First_Approver,
SecondApprovalEmployee.FirstName as Second_approvar,
ThirdApprovalEmployee.FirstName as Third_approvar

FROM         tbl_PoAproval INNER JOIN
    Employees as FirstApprovalEmployee ON tbl_PoAproval.FistAproval = FirstApprovalEmployee.EmployeeID
INNER JOIN
    Employees as SecondApprovalEmployee ON tbl_PoAproval.SecondAproval = SecondApprovalEmployee.EmployeeID
INNER JOIN
    Employees as ThirdApprovalEmployee ON tbl_PoAproval.ThirdAproval = ThirdApprovalEmployee.EmployeeID

WHERE     (tbl_PoAproval.PONumber = 'WA-011075')
