I have two tables both with VRR_VehicleID I was hoping to delete the records in TblExporthVinstems that are in table [Upload forcedmatches] I have sql as:

DELETE *
FROM TblExporthVinstems
WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT * FROM TblExporthVinstems where TblExporthVinstems.[VRR_VehicleID] = [Upload ForcedMatches].[VRR_VehicleID]);

but when i run it doesnt know [Upload ForcedMatches].[VRR_VehicleID] it sits there waiting for a parameter and not sure why.

I presume it's simply because you have to say = [Upload ForcedMatches] in the frmo
DELETE *
FROM TblExporthVinstems
WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT * FROM  [Upload ForcedMatches]  where TblExporthVinstems.[VRR_VehicleID] = [Upload ForcedMatches].[VRR_VehicleID]);
