What do the red chevrons in the Database Expert mean?

I've had to go into an old report of our and work on it. I've had to add new tables and remove some data that was formerly displayed. Also, and this might be relevant to my question, we've had a change in the server that hosts our production database. When I brought up the report in Visual Studio 2010, and started to edit it, it asked for the username and password to the report (it's a report that runs against our SQL Server database). Well, the networking people have put in the necessary entries into DNS so that the old database server's name will point to the new database server. And naturally these reports are old enough that they would be pointing to the old database server name. So I entered the new database server name and used that.

Anyway, after adding 2 new tables (ASIATRSupplement and ASICodesATREducationLevel) to the query I was making sure that the links were correct in the Database Expert | Links tab. They're correct, but there's some red chevrons next to the keys that are being linked on. What does that mean? Here's a screen capture of what I'm talking about:

    Those mean that the fields are part of an index. If you have multiple indexes on a table, you might see multiple colors - one for each separate index.
