Need help in deleting non-current fields in FileMaker Pro 9

Post

I have inherited a FileMaker database at a new job that is loaded with fields that are no longer relevant.  I have not been able to delete the fields directly from File/Manager.  I figured out that perhaps I could not delete fields from 2005 until I had deleted all the layouts that included 2005 fields.  Once I deleted 2005 related layouts, I could delete the 2005 fields.  Now I'm working on 2006.  I think I have deleted all layouts with 2006 fields, but try as I might, my instructions to delete 2006 fields and then do the final "discard" still does not work.  Does anyone have a clue about what I should try next?  Am I right in thinking that I can't delete the fields until I've deleted the layout(s) that include them?

 

By the way, I have "graduated" from FileMaker Pro #5 at home to FileMaker #9.

 

Thanks
