Subj:   Primary index and table space

Hello,

Couple of weeks ago, in this forum, some where along a thread about the discussion on the primary index I read that the PI don't take up any space like the secondary indices, as the PI is used only to distribute the rows across the AMPs. However when I created two tables exactly alike with 100,000 rows except for the PI, the one with more columns in the PI took more space. Could any one explain this why? (both have the identical data sets, identical data structures except for the PI)

Thanks
