I am using a 2013 workflow to delete an item. If that item is part of a lookup field of some other item, it cannot be deleted. The workflow will stop with an error. How do I know if an item is part of a lookup field in some other item before it can be deleted?


I once posted a similar(ish) question to yours, I needed to find all look-up fields that 'point' to a list.

In my answer here I included a link to powershell, which Mike Smith (a respected SPSE contributor) posted on his own website. I didn't use the powershell, I don't know how to, but perhaps you can and hence would get a better way of resolving your questions than I did!
