I believe that means it is a partitioned index.  If so you need to look in dba_ind_partitions.

N/A means "not applicable"

slightwv is correct,  the status of the index as a whole is "not applicable" because each partition of the index has its own status

Did you really only need the abbreviation explained or did you also need the context in which a status was not applicable?  If you needed the context as well then slightwv should get a split
