SharePoint 2007 Column Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello to everybody out there,

    I have accidentally inputted a column in my list.  I am unable to delete it.  when i go to delete it through the list settings, there is no delete button.  When i try to go to the column list through the site settings, it's the same.  i am unable to delete it.  I have got it to where it doesn't show up on my list but it still shows up on my form.  Can anybody help me out?

  • does your list use content types? (it sounds like it does)

    If so, click into the content type, and then into the column.

    Be aware that you can remove the field from the content type at the site, or from the content type as it's used in the list (unless the content type is marked "sealed"). If you remove it at the site level, the change may be replicated to any other list that uses it (optional), and the change will be maintained for any future uses of the content type.
