An error DELETE_OPERATION_TOO_LARGE generated
|Knowledge Article Number||000149021|
|Description||During data load or during running any test script, a customer can experienced the following error while trying to delete very small set of data (even less than100 rows) in an object.
Below is an error example:
DELETE_OPERATION_TOO_LARGE:Cascade deleting too many records.
The error can be because of a high number of deleted records related to that record.
Currently, this is Working As Designed. Database operations include statistics for all records (including soft deleted or recycle bin records and hard deleted records).
Empty the recycle bin and contact Salesforce.com support to perform a physical delete to clear the deleted records.
This may involve more than an end user can accomplish in the Recycle Bin. An Administrator may need to be involved to assess the ramifications of emptying the Org Wide Recycle Bin.
