Number of rows in all tables in MSSQL Server

During reverse-engineering of a¬†project, I had a suspicion, that some of database tables are not used at all. I wanted to get number of rows in each tables, but there were like 200 tables and I didn’t wanted to go through them one-by-one. Quick search in the Internet revealed this useful query:

[sql]
SELECT
t.NAME AS TableName,
i.name as indexName,
p.[Rows],
sum(a.total_pages) as TotalPages,
sum(a.used_pages) as UsedPages,
sum(a.data_pages) as DataPages,
(sum(a.total_pages) * 8) / 1024 as TotalSpaceMB,
(sum(a.used_pages) * 8) / 1024 as UsedSpaceMB,
(sum(a.data_pages) * 8) / 1024 as DataSpaceMB
FROM
sys.tables t
INNER JOIN
sys.indexes i ON t.OBJECT_ID = i.object_id
INNER JOIN
sys.partitions p ON i.object_id = p.OBJECT_ID AND i.index_id = p.index_id
INNER JOIN
sys.allocation_units a ON p.partition_id = a.container_id
WHERE
t.NAME NOT LIKE ‘dt%’ AND
i.OBJECT_ID > 255 AND
i.index_id <= 1
GROUP BY
t.NAME, i.object_id, i.index_id, i.name, p.[Rows]
ORDER BY
object_name(i.object_id)
[/sql]
