Deleting Attributes

If you used sample data while setting up your store, you might have attributes that aren’t needed for your catalog. When an attribute is deleted, it is removed from any related products and attribute sets. System attributes are part of the core functionality of your store and cannot be deleted.

To delete an attribute:

1. On the Admin menu, select Catalog > Attributes > Manage Attributes.
2. In the list, find the attribute and click to open the record.
3. Click the Delete Attribute button.
4. When prompted to confirm, click OK.
