Deleting a Custom Product Field

About this task

Before you import data associated with a custom field, you can delete the custom field and create a new custom field with the same name. You may want to do this if you created a custom field with the wrong data type associated with it.

You can still delete a custom field after it is mapped and imported data has been associated with it. However, you will not be able to create a new custom field with the same name until after the next file import completed. When you delete a mapped custom field that has associated data, the field and its data is deleted during the next file import. Deleting a field could break messages that use the field, so make sure the field isn't used in marketing campaigns before it is deleted.
