Well, I think this can help you as a start point:

SELECT SCHEMA_NAME(T.[schema_id]) + '.' + T.name, USER_NAME(S.principal_id) AS Owner
FROM sys.tables T
INNER JOIN sys.schemas S
ON T.[schema_id] = S.[schema_id]
ORDER BY T.name

In SQL Server 2008 the owner is the one that own the schema where the object resides.

Well, in the preceeding sentence, I must fix: "the owner (in tables) is the one that own the schema where the object resides"

That was surely very helpful so what about if this was for a SQL 2000 server? How would the code look?

Well, you can get the estimated row size with this one:

SELECT SCHEMA_NAME(T.[schema_id]) + '.' + T.name, USER_NAME(S.principal_id) AS Owner, SUM(C.max_length) AS EstimatedRowSize
FROM sys.tables T
INNER JOIN sys.schemas S
ON T.[schema_id] = S.[schema_id]
INNER JOIN sys.columns C
ON T.[object_id] = C.[object_id]
GROUP BY T.[schema_id], T.name, S.principal_id
ORDER BY T.name

I actuallly have a query that would do what I need I just need to re-engineer it to give me the object owners. Maybe you can help me here. Below is the query I am using and it works in both SQL 2000 and SQL 2008. Please help to modify it to return the object owners

SELECT so.[name], used AS "# of Pages", rows AS "# of Rows", (used * 8) /
1024 AS "# of MB"  
FROM sysobjects so JOIN sysindexes si ON so.id = si.id
WHERE so.xtype = 'U'
ORDER BY used DESC

You can use this query to get the table size:

SELECT T.name AS TableName, SUM(P.record_count * P.avg_record_size_in_bytes) AS TotalSize
FROM sys.tables T
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats(DB_ID(), NULL, NULL, NULL, 'DETAILED') AS P
WHERE T.[object_id] = P.[object_id]
GROUP BY T.name
ORDER BY T.name
