I'm starting to use ANT to deploy changes to my SF org. Can I delete and edit custom fields using the ANT Migration Tool. In the documentation I only found how to delete the entire object


Yes, you can specify individual fields in the package.xml (for deploy) and destructivechanges.xml (for deletion)

The syntax is as follows


A great reference for finding the different types you can deploy, and more about the migration tool in general, is http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/daas/salesforce_migration_guide.pdf
