This example creates a partitioned primary index based on character data specified for a RANGE_N function. Notice that no EACH clause is specified for the RANGE_N partitioning expression in level 1 of the multilevel partitioning in this case.

     CREATE TABLE t1(
       i INTEGER,
       j CHARACTER(4),
       k INTEGER)
     PRIMARY INDEX(i)
     PARTITION BY (RANGE_N(j BETWEEN 'aaaa','cccc','eeee', 
                  'gggg','iiii','kkkk',
                  'mmmm','oooo','qqqq',
                  'ssss' 
                             AND     'tttt',
          NO RANGE),
                   RANGE_N(k BETWEEN 1 
                             AND    10 
                             EACH    1));
