Icannot delete a custom column / Model-driven

To a Custom entity, I have added a custom column, used for a while, then decided that I do not need it. I removed it from ALL forms, views, processes, business rules etc and I am sure it is not used anywhere. I try to delete but it always says there is a dependency in the main form, while I swear it is not. 

 

How to force delete such?

Just double checking - have you published (it needs it) after you have removed it.

Of course I did, twice to be sure 😊 but it keeps telling me I cannot delete. Dependency is main form, while it is not.

Have you tried adding it onto the form it says its already on and then publishing, then removing it and publishing.

Also, if you open the form does it show in the list of unused fields.

Hi @Yahya,

Although the field might not be on the form, if it’s a lookup field, the relationship might be on the Related tab of the child form. Open the form from the dependency window and check the related pane. Might be easier to switch to classic form designer.

hope this helps!
