List of site columns already used (I want to add a new one and it says it is in use)

  Asked By: Hiral    Date: May 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1573

I want to add a custom site column at the site level "Description". However, it tells me that is already being used.

However, none of my lists ARE using it so far as I can tell.

I assume some SharePoint built in list must be using that or wants it as a reserved word?

How can I check on that?

There is a hidden site  column named "Description". You can create your site column  with a different name, then rename the list  column to "Description" after adding the site column to the list.
