The dimension exists as a default dimension. You cannot delete the dimension.

While trying to delete a new financial dimension I’d created, Ireceived the following error: The dimension exists as a default dimension. You cannot delete the dimension.
Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations Finanical Dimensions

The dependent records I needed to delete were in two tables: DimensionAttributeSetItem and DimensionAttribute. (Make sure to update your URL strings appropriately)

DimensionAttributeSetItem

https://YOURENVIRONMENTLINK.dynamics.com/?mi=SysTableBrowser&TableName=DimensionAttributeSetItem&cmp=YOURLEGALENTITY&limitednav=true&lng=en-us

DimensionAttribute

https://YOURENVIRONMENTLINK.dynamics.com/?mi=SysTableBrowser&TableName=DimensionAttribute&cmp=YOURLEGALENTITY&limitednav=true&lng=en-us

For more information, see my previous post for more information on deleting records from tables and the Table Browser Caller Chrome Extension.
