Deleting Irrelevant Fields


#1

I was wondering if there was a specific way to delete irrelevant fields during database construction? I have been putting together a database and as time progressed it has become important to remove some fields. I have hidden the fields and removed all data but the spreadsheet does not let me remove them.

Also is there a way to change the names of existing fields?

Right-click is your friend:

If it was that simple I would not have emailed…

You need to have “creator” permissions to create or delete fields in a base. It looks like your permission level in that base is edit-only.

Here’s more info on permissions: https://support.airtable.com/hc/en-us/articles/202887099-Permissions

Thank you I’ll take that up with our “creator”. I appreciate the quick
response! Have a nice rest of your day.

Oops! Sorry; I read “database construction” to imply these were fields you had added but no longer desired. Sorry!
