Using IN with a subquery
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms177682.aspx

I'm using the IN from the above link

I'm using sql server Northwind database

When I run this query

-- Determines whether a specified value matches any value in a subquery or a list.
SELECT * FROM [Northwind].[dbo].[Orders]
WHERE [CustomerID] IN(
                      SELECT * FROM [Northwind].[dbo].[Customers]                            
                     )


I get this error

"Only one expression can be specified in the select list when the subquery is not introduced with EXISTS."

Any idea of why i'm getting this error

You need to specify what column you are looking for CustomerID in instead of using SELECT *

like this

SELECT * FROM [Northwind].[dbo].[Orders]
WHERE [CustomerID] IN(
                      SELECT CustomerID FROM [Northwind].[dbo].[Customers]                             
                     )
