delete Workflow columns
I have workflows that I have deleted but the columns remain.
Any ideas on how to permanently remove columns that show workflow progress?

If you are using SharePoint 2010 you can do this using Power Shell:
unfortunately, it's 2007
In this case you can try to delete the workflow association with the list (List Settings\Workflow) then the column for that association should be deleted.

we did that but for whatever reason, it still shows.
Normally when we delete a workflow the column gets deleted too automatically, but it seems that older versions of the workflow, even deleted ones,
show up when we can build/modify views. We can delete the list and start over but there is too much invested in it already.

modify the view and remove/unselect the workflow column...
SeanUK777, I know that can be done but that's not what I'm trying to do. When a workflow is deleted, it's supposed to delete the the status column also but in my case it's not. It's just a nuisance.
