  • Hi,

    If you are having issues deleting, look at the relationships you have made and wherever you have published lookup attributes on the forms and views on either side of the relationships (loan entity or the other entity), remove these lookup attributes from the forms and views, publish the loan and other entity, then you should be able to delete the loan entity without error.

    In terms of exporting, if you have an entity with relationships to another entity, I suggest you export both entities at the same time. That way the relationships will be preserved when you re-import and hopefully you won't receive error messages.

    Hope that helps,
