how to delete custom object ? i cannot find the delete option...

Varun SinghVarun Singh
Hi Radhi

If there  is No Realtion with another object then fallow these steps

If custom object have relation with another object 

When attempting to delete a custom object record, an error message may appear that references a relationship to another object, which is currently preventing the deletion.  Within the error, a table is displayed that provides a list of the related records that are causing the problem.

Example Error Message:

"Your attempt to delete [record name] could not be completed because it is associated with the following [object name]. If the following table is empty, it's because you don't have access to the records restricting the delete."

In some situations, the table appears empty even when there are no permissions/access issues. 


Check the referenced Object for a custom Lookup field that relates back to the record that needs deletion.  Once found, follow these steps:

- Click on the field to see its details.
- Under the "Lookup Options" section, check the value for "What to do if the lookup record is deleted?"
- If the value is set to "Don't allow deletion of the lookup record that's part of a lookup relationship.", this will need to be changed to "Clear the value of this field."

Once this change has been saved, it should be possible to delete the affected record.

I hope it is helpful for you
