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.
