When I analyze partitioned tables, sometimes I get global stats and sometimes I don't. What do I need to do to get consistent returns on global stats? When I look at the DBMS_STATS.GATHER_TABLE_STATS produced by TOAD the statements are identical for partitioned tables that have global stats and tables that don't.
On the Options tab, uncheck "Load All Partitions of Partitioned Tables/Indexes".
The next time that table is loaded into the screen, there will be just one entry for the table, not one for each partition.
