Total Number Of Records In each TableQuite often in our day today activity we need to check the count of records in each table of the database. So instead of firing count(*) against all the table, we can use the DMV's ie inbuild system procedures or functions to get the desired result.
select distinct s.name asName_Schema,o.name as Table_Name,p.row_count asTotal_Records from sys.objects o inner join sys.dm_db_partition_stats p on o.object_id = p.object_id
inner join sys.schemas s on o.schema_id=s.schema_id
where o.type = 'U'
So lets say we want to get the list of tables along with the total records in Adventureworks database.
Below is the output for the same:
|Name-Schema ||Table_Name ||Total_Records |
|HumanResources ||Department ||16 |
|HumanResources ||Employee ||290 |
|HumanResources ||EmployeeAddress ||290 |
|HumanResources ||EmployeeDepartmentHistory ||296 |
|HumanResources ||EmployeePayHistory ||316 |
|HumanResources ||JobCandidate ||13 |
|HumanResources ||Shift ||3 |
