Table Size Estimator

By dave_is_here,

This script will output an estimate for the space required for a given number of rows for a specified table; the estimated size is based on the data produced by the "sp_spaceused" stored procedure.

The script is written as stand alone, though it also lends itself to creation as a stored procedure, and can be run in any database where the user has the required permissions.

Full instructions on how to run the script are included in the script header.

The script has been tested on SQL Server 2000.
