How to delete lookups

Posted: 21 Mar 2018

Hello,
I added the lookups and now get the generic ERR in my list. I have added it in other lists and I don't get this, so I am trying to figure out the issue. Even though the interface says it won't save, it does save when I click "don't save my changes"

I need to be able to delete the lookups so I can start over. How can I do this in the online version?

Thank you.

If you created a form for this List and added Lookup field to it, don't forget to delete it from the form and re-save the form after it.
