I am monitoring my table size using this stored procedure:

sp_spaceused 'tableName'


But, I don't have enough experience to know how to put it into a table in sql so I can monitor trends.  Can you help please?

here's a simple script:

in that example the result table is dropped - but that can be amended to suit

Here is what you can do. Create the table to hold the data and remove drop and create from subsequent executions.
drop table #t
create table #t(name varchar(100),rows varchar(100),reserved varchar(100),data varchar(100),index_size varchar(100),unused varchar(100),currTime datetime default getdate())

insert into #t (name,rows,reserved,data,index_size,unused)
exec sp_spaceused N'avgtable'

select * from #t

Open in new window
