Why do YOU need to know that? It was asked by the OP over 10 years ago.

I'm sorry, I just do not understand. You have no punctuation and the words seem disjointed.

It looks like this is part of a select query, like:

select * from your_table 
where  qualification_ind IN (4, 6, 20, 22);

If this is the case, the it is telling the query to limit the rows returned to those where the column named qualification_ind is one of those four values in the in clause. It would be the same as:

select * from your_table 
where  qualification_ind = 4
or     qualification_ind = 6
or     qualification_ind = 20
or     qualification_ind = 22;

Using an IN clause shortens the code.
