Hi Rehman,

I saw your question about which data dictionary has the partition table and forwarded it to a Teradata Database subject matter expert and his response was:

partition size is not a field in any table.

The partitioning expressions can be retrieved using the DBC.IndexConstraints view. (from that user can determine the number of partitions.

Index Kind in the indexes table indicates if it is a ppi primary index with 'Q' (whereas as nonpartitioned primary index would be 'P'. Maybe 'Q' is also used in the constraintsname table for the type of name for a PPI primary index.

I think that is about it for getting info from data dictionary about partitioning.

Hope this information helps.
