Have you tried to quote each table name and column name by " , and constant by ' ? In your case, try
delete from "reporttable" where ( "srvServerid" = 'serverid') and
( "rptreportid" not in(select "rptreportid" from "reporttable"
where ( "srvserverid" = 'serverid' order by "rpttimestamp" desc)));
Appropriate quoting can help PostgreSQL understand SQL without ambiguity.

Subject: [BUGS] 'order by' and 'desc' not working in subquery using 'not
Rahul Gade (Rahul_g(at)ip(dot)eth(dot)net) reports a bug with a severity of 1
The lower the number the more severe it is.
'order by' and 'desc' not working in subquery using 'not in'
I am facing two big problems,they may not be really big but in my case these are big :
1) temporary tables can not be created inside function using PL/pgsql
2) order by and desc keywords are not functioning inside subquery
in the following query i am trying to delete all the rows except the top 20 rows from reporttable.
How i can do this.
i have done this in MSSQL using same syntax
Out of these two 2nd problem is important for me,
plase tell me what to do,
--- Thanks for response ----
delete from reporttable where (srvServerid=serverid) and
(rptreportid not in(select rptreportid from reporttable
where (srvserverid=serverid order by rpttimestamp desc)));
