Your Syntax is correct. If you are using the exact same SQL and getting error its is just that you are using table in your from it is a keyword so you will get an error

try this, this will not give an error:::

select varcharcolumn from [table] where varcharcolumn not in ('term1', 'term2', 'term3')

did that help ? let me know...
