How to removed columns when list holds over 5000 items


  • We have a list (Document Library) which has way over 5000 items. All is going well as the views, indexing etc. are working well.

    However we have a number of old columns we need to remove, but we cannot perform the action through the UI or more concerning, through CSOM to delete the columns.

    This would not be an issue on-prem as I could just increase the threshold for a short period of time, but I cannot take that action when Online.

    Anyone got any other suggestions?
