I updated my form, but my (tracking) sheet still has old fields within it. Why didn't those delete?

I am trying to report on the information captured within my recently created Smartsheet. However, after making several updates to the Smartsheet (form), the grid is still displaying fields that are no longer in the form. How do I get my grid info to match the info within the sheet? I need to be able to report on the information that is captured on the sheet.

I attempted to 'delete' unnecessary columns, but they reappear whenever I log back in.

    Hi @Drea Burgett

    You can delete fields from a form and leave the associated columns on the sheet by using the delete button like this:

    It sounds like this is what you are doing.

    If you want to edit the sheet itself and remove the columns, you need to open the sheet and delete the column there.

    You can also hide columns if you want to retain them in the sheet and just not see them. Or create reports and include only a subset of your columns.
