Probably the easiest way is to use the DspFd command from the command-line.


dspfd YourLib/YourTable

At the bottom of the output, you'll see the size of the file in bytes.

Open in new window

Alternately, if you prefer to use the GUI (System i Navigator), you can expand the Database tab for the system you interested in. Then navigate to the target schema and table. Right-click on the table and select "Description". On the resulting screen, you'll see the file-size.
