This is an internal helper table used by SQL Server.

It's not worth talking about. This table is a design nightmare of a "super" lookup table.

These values are your server run time configuration. See sp_configure in books on line. Secondly this information is pretty well documented in most sql admin books. One hand book you might want to get is "SQL Server 2000 Administrator's Pocket Consultant".

I absolutely agree with Frank. I had to write a script recently to collect information on all the properties of all the Linked Servers on a given server. To collect the information on the 'Server Options' tab, I had to go to this spt_values table to get the description. crazy table

Maybe we should make a little life story on this one, and add it up against the super lookup tables articles .

SELECT TOP 25 A.name,(SELECT rows FROM dbo.sysindexes s WITH (NOLOCK)  
WHERE s.indid < 2 AND s.id = A.ID )AS [Row count],SpaceUsedMB from
(SELECT SO.NAME,SO.ID,
CONVERT(numeric(15,2),(((CONVERT(numeric(15,2),SUM(i.reserved)) * (SELECT low
FROM master.dbo.spt_values WITH (NOLOCK) WHERE number = 1 AND type = 'E')) / 1024.)/1024.)) SpaceUsedMB
FROM dbo.sysindexes i WITH (NOLOCK) INNER JOIN dbo.sysobjects so WITH (NOLOCK)
ON i.id = so.id AND so.type IN ('U')
WHERE indid IN (0, 1, 255)
GROUP BY SO.NAME,SO.ID)
AS A
ORDER BY SpaceUsedMB DESC



Just one of the many uses of spt_values
