CREATE TABLE #tblResults
(
   [name]   nvarchar(255),

         "INSERT INTO #tblResults
           ([name],[rows],[reserved],[data],[index_size],[unused])
          EXEC sp_spaceused '?'"
   
-- Strip out the " KB" portion from the fields
UPDATE #tblResults SET
   [reserved_int] = CAST(SUBSTRING([reserved], 1,

Why re-invent the wheel: There is a standard report in SSMS that already gives you that information:
1. Object Explorer.
2. Right-click the database.
3. Reports
4. Standard Reports
5. Disk Usage by Top Tables.
