The syntax of an SQL DELETE statement (in Jet) is:
DELETE * FROM <tablename> WHERE <conditions>

If your list box contains the primary key of the table, you need something like:
DoCmd.RunSQL "DELETE * FROM Direction WHERE DirectionID=" & Me!delDirection

perhaps you'll have to use

docmd.execute "DELETE * FROM Direction WHERE DirectionID=" & delDirection.list(deldirection.listindex)

OR

docmd.runsql "DELETE * FROM Direction WHERE DirectionID=" & delDirection.list(deldirection.listindex)

The .List property is a property of the command-bar combo box - not a form listbox.
