Display Rows/Space Used by all user tables

By jennyma,

This procedure will display the rows, reserved, data, index and unused space used in KB for all user tables in the database.  The idea is to call sp_spaceused repeatedly. 

Limitation: certain versions of sp_spaceused will truncate the table name to 20 characters.
Speed will depend on current activity level and locking in the database.  It will be nice if Microsoft will write sp_spaceused with the nolock option.  You can always create your own version of sp_spaceused with the necessary modifications :-)
