Unable to remove a SiteContent Type from a List..

  Asked By: Bennie    Date: Mar 26    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1253

I am getting when I try to Delete a Site Content
Type from the List.

Content Type is still in use
Troubleshoot issues with Windows SharePoint Services.

I have deleted all columns in that Content Type. Still I cant remove it.

Any Idea how can I get through this?

The Content Type has been added to some list  or Library in your site
collection. You need to delete  it from that list before you can delete
it from the Gallery.

Don't we get this message if any document IS that content  type? I think
you have to change every document of that type  to another CT, before you
can remove  it?

Actually, you have to do both. If any doc or list  item is that content
type you won't be able to remove  it from the list/library. Until you
remove it from the list/library you won't be able to delete  it from the
Content Types gallery. I misread the original post and thought he was
trying to delete the content type  from the site, not just from the list.
