Deleted Solution Workflows Still Create Dependencies

Hi Everyone,


This one has me really puzzled. I had a solution which for one reason or another I needed to delete from my environment. Simple, right? Not so much, I deleted it but some of the fields in the one solution now appear in another solution. Not only that, but I can't delete the fields (a Choice in this instance) because a flow is dependent on it. I could delete the flow, except the flow was part of the original solution I deleted and can no longer be found. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to be able to remove the dependency requirement from a dependent object that no longer exists. Has anyone come across this before? Screenshot of the issue below :

Ok, so I figured this one out. I found that one of the tables I though had been deleted, hadn't. So far, so good, but when I came to delete the table I couldn't because *that* had dependencies on it. I used the dependency analyser plugin for XrmToolBox and it showed me a couple of other flows that had been removed when I deleted the Solution - weird.


I'd seen a couple of instances where the Classic interface contained more information so I had a look in there and lo and behold all the flows I'd deleted with the Solution (and that no longer showed up anywhere in the Modern UI) were all listed. From there I deleted the flows, then the table and finally the Choice. 


This might all seem pretty obvious to someone more experienced, but for a n00b who has mainly only used the Modern UI interface it's a bit of a trick. Hope this helps someone else!
