do you have an event receiver that might be handling the item? – David Lozzi Apr 29 '13 at 23:51
could you explain? i haven't set anything up out of the ordinary... – April Drake Apr 30 '13 at 0:02
nevermind then, you would know ;) is it occurring on other lists? – David Lozzi Apr 30 '13 at 0:18
It appears based on the screenshot that there may be a workflow in place. If you delete an item, you are still modifying it and if there is a workflow setup this could be the problem. Just a thought! – spevilgenius Apr 30 '13 at 10:51
any way i could work around this? you are correct there is a workflow on these lists. – April Drake Apr 30 '13 at 17:13
