Mass delete record is not available?

I have a custom object, named obj,

and it has 10000 reocrds in it.

when I go to Data Management - Mass Delete Records

Mass Delete Obj is not there. I checked the profile settings, I have permission to delete Obj record.

 

can anyone give a hint?

You could use the Data Loader to do this.

Using the data loader, first extract the set of data you want to delete. That will create a local csv file with the extracted data.

Then run a 2nd pass (using the cvs created on the export process) as the input to the delete process.

I was also wondering about this. Yes you can use data loader, however I am really shocked there is no mass delete button!? Is this something that is in the pipeline for one of the future releases? Additionally, why is there no un-do button? Any help on this? Thanks

it might because there is a master/detail relationship setup in your object.

Thats true, but just a bunch of records in 1 object, you still can not mass delete them which is why I am surprised there is no functionality to do this
