Hi,

Hope the below example will help..

SQL> analyze table emp compute statistics;

Table analyzed.

SQL> select blocks user_Tables where table_name = 'EMP';

    BLOCKS
     ---------
     26111  

It is showing that currently 26111 blocks has been used by this table, but there may be lots of empty blocks in it ( due to DML Operation) , so we can query the below to find out exactly how many used blocks are there in this table.

SQL> select count( distinct dbms_rowid.ROWID_BLOCK_NUMBER(rowid))  "Actual Blocks" from emp;

ACTUAL BLOCKS
-----------------------
                    20363

it shows that 20363 blocks contains data which means   26111 - 20363 = 5748 , there are totally 5748 empty blocks are there in the emp table.

Thanks...
