  Are the following 2 statements equivalent to the RDBMS?  

  1)Collect Stats on TableA Index (ColB, ColC);  

  2)Collect Stats on TableB Column (ColB, ColC);  

  From an 'Explain' point of view, they look identical.  

There's a difference:

You can drop and recreate that index without losing statistics (similar to a single column index), if you collect on multi-column, because those statistics are stored as a pseudo-index (with indextype 'M') in dbc.indexes.
