Error: Custom field index limit exceeded

Error: Custom field index limit exceeded


I get this error message when I try add a new External ID to the Account Object in a Sandbox.


I have removed both of the other External ID's, and they are not their anymore because when I use data uploader it does not let me choose them, but I still get this error???


Do I need to refresh something or need to wait about?


Thanks in advance


Salesforce allows of creation upto 3 external id's which are the custom index fields beyond that it should give you this error



I have deactive all the other External ID's, so there is none in the Account field, try to create a new one and no joy.

It does get one my boobs sometimes salesforce.



You will need to check for fields that are ticked as Unique they count toward the limit.
