8-byte partitioning

Hi,

I have worked on partitioning before. I know the limits for  NoPI column-paritioned too but I am a bit confused about 2-byte partitioning and 8-byte partitioning and why 8 bytes for number of partitions greater tha  65,535. Can you please throw some light on this?

Thanks for your reply on fallback.

Regards,

Raja
