Assume that you have many partitions in a database object in an instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2014, 2016 and 2017. When you call the ObjectPropertyEx function against the database object that has the property name set to Cardinality, the function returns the row count from the first partition only rather than from all the partitions of the object.
