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