Hi @siva123,


Please verify the formula used under your App controls, make sure there is no formula take the collection name for reference.

Doing this should be able to remove the collection completely.

Clear and Remove function only remove the records, and will keep the column name in the collection.

We need a way to be able to remove the collection without reflecting this in ALL formulas. The issue with this is that if I edit a JSON definition (say use clear collect with a stored procedure) I am then forced to change name of the collection. It's not a huge issue, but not the way it's supposed to be.
