RESIZE SQL DataBase to comply with SQL 2005 Upgrade Advisor Report

SSD-ECN asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I'm preparing to upgrade a SQL 2000 to SQL 2005 and the 2005 Upgrade Analyzer tells me that I need to increase the size of the database to accommodate the DOCID map which gets stored in the database on 2005.  It tells me to calculate the increase based on the formula (2*FTK+34bytes)*RC  where FTK=Full-Text Key Size and RC=Row Count of the table.

How do I find the Full-Text Key size for table?  

This was the only item in the Advisor Report that indicated the issue needed to be fixed BEFORE upgrading and it identified 10 tables that needed the size adjustment.

Any other advice on the upgrade would be appreciated.  I'm NOT a DBA as all our SQL databases are created by 3rd party applications and we do not do any design.
