linq NOT IN using datatables / AsEnumerable

I am not using a datacontext and so I am using datatables.AsEnumerable() to use LINQ as a subquery tool.

I have 2 datatables defined as follows;

Dim dtObjectTypes As DataTable = IMCSelect.getObjectTypes(-1, Application("logUsers"), 1).Tables(0)

Dim dtPermissions As DataTable = IMCSelect.getPermissions(iUserID, -1, Application("logUsers")).Tables(0)

Open in new window

I have started to write a LINQ query to get any items from dtObjectTypes that DO NOT appear in dtPermissions, but VS2010 is telling me the following error;

"o hides a variable in an enclosing block...etc"

Dim query = From o In dtObjectTypes.AsEnumerable() Where Not o.Field(Of Integer)("ID") = (From p In dtPermissions.AsEnumerable() Select p.Field(Of Integer)("TypeID") Select o)
