Easily calculate the size of your tables

By Sylvia Moestl Vasilik,

I use this chunk of code at least once a week. It gives you a quick and easy reference on how big your tables are. This is about as accurate as the system stored procedure sp_spaceused (since it uses the same base tables), but it's handier, since it runs on all the tables in a database, and you can order it by whichever column you want.
