What is considered "revolving credit"?

I have a mortgage and a home equity line of credit.  On one of the credit reports, my HELOC is considered revolving credit therefore my credit score is much lower.  On the others, it is not and my score is higher.  Is this a reporting problem?  Can it be resolved?

HELOCs are normally reported as revolving. Other revolving accounts would be credit cards and charge cards. I would ask the lender to report your HELOC as an installment account for all three CRAs.

I had a past due utility bill with National Grid and Equifax considered that "revolving" too.
