Hi all, I have a question regarding "old" (viz. deleted) variables/calculations. Soemtimes it happens that I deleted a calculation in the workflow. However, the name still appears in the data view (even if I cannot find it anymore in the database in PGAdmin). Obviously Calc also remebers the variable name (I cannot create a new calculation with the same name). How can I get rid of these old fragments?

Thank you, Lutz

Hi Lutz,

when you delete a calculation step, and the variable associated with it is not used in any other step, it gets removed automatically.

please, check that the variable is not used anywhere else (check also inactive calc steps), or try to refresh the page.

If then you need to create a variable with the same name, obviously you cannot, but you can select the variable from the drop down variable selector instead of creating it again.

Please let me know.

Thank you,
