strange field remnant
I'm trying to clean up something from a prior developer who shall remain nameless, and I'm running around in circles.
I have a custom object, called Project Consultant. It had a parent/child releationship with Contact, which I was able to get rid of (details not relevant here). It also has a relationship with a custom object called Project. When I try to delete that relationship, I get a message that says "This object containing this lookup has a summary field in another object. Remove the summary usage and try again.". The Section listing on the error screen says "Project Custom Fields: Total Project Hours". When I click on that link, it takes me to the Project object. Project has no summary fields at all. There is nothing called "project custom fields" anywhere, and no field with this name. Unless they're hidden even from the Administrator? Or there's some crazy remnant someplace? Project does not have a LEX page, which was part of the problem with the Contact link. I can't find Total Project Hours on anything.
This is stopping me from cleaning up a very dodgy data structure, and it's also driving me completely insane. Any thoughts? I'd very much appreciate any help.
Good luck with the rest of your clean-up efforts!
