Table Partitioning Question

Is it possible to create a partitoin on a Logical Key.

There is TableA with Columns PkId & FkId FkId is the PrimaryKey of TableB. TableB also has a date column CreateDate. Is it possible to create a partition on TableA, with partition Key being the Year of TableB's Date Column(CreateDate) without having the year as a column on TableA?

Thanks, Mukunda

Sorry, I don't think this is possible without bringing your partition key back into TableA.

Here's some more info on partitioning for you or the next reader.
