So glad this topic has been ressurrected:
a peach of a question I literally laughed out loud when I read it.

Did I get it right? User whose name is Composite has manually created an index, and now this is a "composite index"? /forum/fa/917/0/

I first thought it was a joke but then I saw everyone (but joy_division) took it seriously in this topic (in which I didn't participate) and the rest comes to be somewhat surrealist.

Not really ... what? OraVision = dbhossain. He asks and answers his own questions, only using different accounts. Sometimes he forgets what login he uses. Mess here, probably in his head too.

This question doesn't appear vague. And yet the OP keeps asking the same question despite being given fairly concrete answers. God alone knows what answer he's actually expecting.

EDIT: fixed link

All you have to do is look at the poster. Look at all his other questions (eg. one word subjects, etc.).

Yes this is what I was about to post when I saw your answer refreshing the page.
I merged both topics with the same question.

ok, not necessarily a "vague" question, but asking strangers what custom objects in their own database created by a third party vendor are. C'mon, really?

I think we should have just said it's a virus and had him drop the tables and see what happens.

In system no less.

Reminds me of a post someone linked me long ago along the lines of "we inserted a row into dual, things got screwy so we truncated dual. What that wrong? Should we not have done that?"

Don't think vague is the right description for that one. Insanely optimistic would be more to the point.
