Renaming Custom Columns - How to Find which Object Uses Them?

Renaming Custom Columns - How to Find which Object Uses Them?

Renaming Custom Columns - How to Find which Object Uses Them?

(OP)
I am on a quest to make custom column names more descriptive to help SQL debugging.

I have custom columns in my project and I don't know what attributes/facts use them.  I see them appear on the list.  When I try to delete it, it gives me an "object in use" error.  How do I find out what object is using the column?

RE: Renaming Custom Columns - How to Find which Object Uses Them?

RMC and see if you can do a dependency check.  Usually it's labelled like "search for child objects" or something like that...
