Are you saying that the caption of the label has a numerical value that you want to use to determine how many characters to use?

To refer to a control on a form, the syntax looks like:

Forms!formName.control

For a labels caption, you would also have to change that to a number, something like:

Val(Forms!formName.lblExportSeqcount.caption)

I assume that the OnlyAlphaNum( ) function call will return a string value

So, in your query it might look like:
Sequence7: Right(OnlyAlphaNum([vin_original_dvla]), Val(Forms!yourFormName.LblExportSeqCount.caption)))
