Basic SQL Database understanding

 

Hi All,

 

I am trying to connect Power BI with SQL server for retail POS system. It's a vendor built system so I have no or very limited knowledge about the system architect. I have basic understanding about databases and wondering if someone can help me understand the difference between image shown for VI* tables vs. AI* tables in below image. So far I have only seen the table image as shown for AI* databases. Can anybody here explain the difference to me? Thanks a lot in advance.
