The custom column cannot be deleted because it is currently being referenced somewhere within your LMS instance.

For example, if you are trying to delete an Item Custom Colum then you will need to check all active and inactive Items to detemine if the custom column is still in use. Check any relevent Connector and Assignment Profile configuration as custom columns can be used in both these locations also.

If still unsuccessful, it could be that the record has interacted with others in the database which has built a chain of relationships in the database structure. Therefore due to referential integrity constraints, the value cannot be deleted.
