pretty much the same thing. xtype gives slightly more detail. Example: In type you only have 'k' for all keys, but in xtype they broken into 'pk', 'fk', 'uq', etc...

From help section...

Grading at Experts Exchange is not like school. It's more like the "10-point Must" system in professional boxing; in other words, an answer is worth an A, unless it doesn't resolve your issue. If it requires you to do a little more research, or figure out one more piece of code, then it's worth a B. If you think it's not worth a B, the custom is to offer the Experts an opportunity to earn a better grade.

It's not a problem, just curious. I always check If it's not a grade of A, so that hopefully next time I can offer a better answer.
