A table or join index with column partitioning cannot have a primary index, so Vantage does not return a row for a primary index for a NoPI table, a column-partitioned table, or a column-partitioned join index.

Because of this, a HELP INDEX request cannot be used to determine whether or not a table or join index is column partitioned.
