I have created two objects School and Teacher. School fields - School name, location, pincode. Teacher fields - Teacher name, salary (number datatype), qualification.

Now i created a rollup summary field for max salary in School object. It created successfully and working fine. Now i wanted to change the datatype of salary from number to currency. It was not allowing me to change the datatype of salary as it was a rollup summary field in School object. So i deleted the rollup summary field in School object. It deleted successfully. But still i am not able to change the datatype of salary, it still shows the error :enter image description here

When you clicked on the delete link, you would have seen this pop-up message:

After you've deleted this field, it appears in the deleted components list for 15 days. During that time, you can either undelete it to restore the field and all data stored in it, or delete the field permanently. Note that when you undelete a field, some properties on the field will be lost or changed. After 15 days, the field and its data are permanently deleted.

You will have 15 days to undelete this field to restore the field and all data stored in it, and after that time it and all data stored in it will be automatically permanently deleted.

So it was actually 'soft' deleted.

You need to switch to Salesforce Classic to find your deleted components. Go to Setup | Object | {Your Object Name} | Fields. Find it at the bottom of the table. And then delete it permanently from there.
