Searchable text:  The selected field <field name> cannot be deleted because of the following dependencies

The dependent fields are inherited record permissions fields.
CauseA cross-reference field cannot be deleted if an inherited record permissions field is only inheriting from that relationship. That would leave the record permission field with nothing to inherit from.
ResolutionEither delete the inherited record permissions field, or select another relationship for the record permissions field to inherit from. You will then be able to delete the cross-reference field.
