What is the meaning of different table icons?

I noticed that in the Object Explorer, Tables list, that there are some tables that have a different icon. Just wondering what they mean. Any thoughts?


Welcome to the Toad Data Point forum, Bill.

Typically, small icons are added to the larger icons within the Object Explorer to indicate an object's special attribute or characteristic... However, I've never seen one of these before. If i had to guess, I'd say that these icons might designate table partitioning? Or columnar tables? I did scour the Help file in TDP, but didn't see any legend that defines the meaning of the different icons that could appear in the Object Explorer.

What data source platform does this list of objects come from?
