SQL Error 'Must declare the scalar variable "@Actions'


Why am I getting this error when I have already declared it?

--Run the entire script in one go

DECLARE @Actions       TABLE  (ActionId uniqueidentifier)

--Grab actionid @Actions and insert into the variable table @Actions
SELECT actionid
FROM Action
Where Actionid in ('1F29300C-6059-4402-AB17-AB2D01674568', '5303D037-F50F-4E71-91F9-30BBC0993E68')

--Returns the 2 IDs as expected
Select *
from @Actions

--Now delete the 2 Ids from the @Actions Variable table
FROM dbo.Action
WHERE ActionId  = @Actions

--I get error here when I go to delete the 2 Ids in the variable table

'Msg 137, Level 16, State 1, Line 3
Must declare the scalar variable "@Actions"..

It's because you are using @Actions in a where clause when it's a table.  You need to join to it in your delete statement instead of setting ActionID = @Actions.

   dbo.Action a
   INNER JOIN @Action b
      ON a.actionid = b.actionID
