I've created an empty table in an Oracle geodatabase. It was created in ArcCatalog by using the catalog tree >> New >> Table tool. The table is registered with the geodatabase and is not registered as versioned. The only field it has is the default OBJECTID field.
Why does it return False when I run an Is_Simple check? Shouldn't it be returning True, since it doesn't participate in extended geodatabase functionality?
SELECT SDE.GDB_UTIL.Is_Simple('ENG', 'TEST_TABLE') FROM DUAL; FALSE

To test whether this had something to do with being registered with the geodatabase, I created a separate table that was not registered with the geodatabase (used the Create Unregistered Table geoprocessing tool). When I run the SQL query it returns NOT REGISTERED. In my question above, I'm getting FALSE, as opposed to NOT REGISTERED, so I don't think that's the problem; the table is definitely registered with the geodatabase.
