Try this link

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143432.aspx

It states that the maximum rows per table is only limited by your available storage

Thank you kev for your quick response i have visited the link but still did not find exact answer.
i got following info.
columns in a table=246
Bytes for each column=1024
Total bytes in a table for each row=246*1024=251904bytes or 246 K bytes of one row.
My question was how many rows maximum in a table.

look at this article.

As stated and as in the link, it depends on how much storage space you have on your server, so it can not be tied down to a number, if you have a lot of storage you can have a lot of rows..

bilalhaider86 ,

I'm not sure where you got those values from, but that article is about SQL2000 and you originally asked about SQL2005.

Plus be careful when calculating the number of bytes per row, as SQL will store some data off-row if the on-row limit is reached - so whilst the spec says 8060 bytes per row, you can store more than that depending on the data types involved.

The link for SQL2000 is http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa933149(SQL.80).aspx - and again the maximum number of rows is only limited by the available storage.

The capacity specs are listed in books online. to briefly summarise:

Database size 524,258 terabytes

Files per database: 32,767

File size (data): 16 terabytes

Rows per table: Limited by available storage

Plus you have the LOB data that's stored off row.

Thanks kev.
I got those values from the link you have shared to me in the first reply.
And i was in need of the information about the records limits in MS SQL Server 2005, which you provided me in the latest reply. That it depends on the storage.
The link which i shared was a comparison between SQL Server 2000 and MS Access.
Again thanks for your valuable participation.
Regards.
Bilal Haider.
