Impossible to delete a column in dataverse


I cannot delete a column in Dataverse due a dependency...

Message : There are dependencies on this column that are preventing it from being deleted.


But I cannot find where I can see this dependency. It's a pity that Microsoft don't mention which dependency in the error Message.

 The only place I use(d) this column was in a Flow. But I deactivated it but nothing changes.

Thank you in advance.

"Deactivate" still carries the dependency.  it still exists and could be reactivated. You would need to delete the use of the field in the flow all together to remove the dependency. 


I tried to follow your procedure but to do this I had to add my flow to the Solution.
When i did it, my flow disappeared from My Flows. I tried to remove it from the solution.
Now, I cannot find my flow anywhere.  It's a nightmare -> Hours of work 😞

Help !! Do you know how to recover it ?

Thank you in advance.
