Finding the total size of databases on SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005

Is there a quick way to find the total size of each database on SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005? I have tried running “sp_spaceused”, but I do not want to run it manually for each database. Do you have any ideas?

You can run this commend for each database.

select sum(convert(dec(15), size))
from dbo.sysfiles

To automate it for all databases, you’ll want something like this.

create table #c
(db sysname,
size dec(15))

declare @b numeric(12,2)
select @b = low
from master.dbo.spt_values
where number = 1
	and type = 'E'

exec sp_MSforeachdb '
use ?
insert into #c
select db_name(), sum(convert(dec(15), size))
from dbo.sysfiles'

select db, size/(1048576/@b)
from #c

drop table #c
