Last updated on MARCH 27, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: 10.2.0.1 to 11.2.0.2 - Release: 10.2 to 11.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When creating a global partition index with two indexed columns, the first column is a Varchar2 containing a GUID (global unique identifier) and the second is a date. For two records with the same GUID and different Dates (which cross partition boundaries) both records will be inserted in the same index partition.
