Inactive TDC tag won't Delete

I have a Honeywell TDC/TPS tag that needs to be deleted. The system will not let me delete it if the point is still active. I Inactive the tag from the point detail display, then go to the builder tools page and select delete system entity.

Unfortunately when I try and delete the point, I get an error telling me that the point is still active!

After checking that I hadn't mistyped something and getting a colleague to check, I eventually worked it out.

The points had a Red Tag active on them. The red tag is used to stop the point getting changed inadvertently. When the red tag is ON, the system will not let you delete the point.

Once the red tag was removed, I was able to delete the tag without any other issues.
