HELP INDEX and NoPI Tables, Column‑Partitioned Tables, and Column‑Partitioned Join Indexes

A table or join index with column partitioning cannot have a primary index, so Teradata Database 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.
