I’ve just released the latest version of this script you can find at GitHub. There is just a small fix provided by Lynne Taggart in this release.

Not so while ago I’ve covered a new feature in OMS (MSOMS) called custom fields. When I’ve covered this feature I was missing a way to actually remove an already created custom field. Mistakes happen, you can create field and two months later you may not need that field any more and many other scenarios.
