Duplicate threads but I was only allowed to delete one of the two. RRS feed

  • Question

  • There were two duplicate threads in the SharePoint - Excel Services forum.

    One of the two I had earlier moved from the SharePoint - General forum. The other had been posted direct to Excel Services with identical content and a slightly revised Subject.

    I wanted to delete the thread that had been posted direct to Excel Services as it had no replies except an identical one.

    I couldn't. The Options drop down for that thread did not contain Delete Thread (but did contain Move Thread and Merge Thread).

    The other thread ( did include the Delete Thread option but wasn't the one of the two I wanted to delete.

    Why did one thread not have the Delete Thread option?

    Note: I "solved" this by merging the threads (to the one I could delete - the one with the URL above) and then deleting the duplicate posts. That worked.
