How to delete Melody object from out of root in control structure

We have started to delete some tags from 5.0Sp2RevE system. After deleting few tags we did analyze from Config server. After completing the analyze we saw tags are deleted from PPA but tags are created outside the Root object of control structure. Also same set of tags present inside the root object of control structure below Melody system object.

When we are trying to delete outside tag from control structure then one message is showing that "Deletion of this object shall be done in melody composer only! Transaction cancelled"

If we will delete tag from composer then tag will delete from both the place.

Please provide solution to delete melody tag which appears also in outside of control structure.

Thank you

Please don't delete any Melody tags in 800xA just by right click and delete.

You have two possibilities how to do this.

1) Delete function in Composer Melody and make a commissioning of function. It will delete related tag in 800xA automatically via MelTagImporter tool.

2) If you want to delete just Melody tag in 800xA and keep it in Composer, you have to delete tag in Melody Config server database as first! And it will delete its in 800xA Aspect server as well.
