How to calculate the "actual" size of each row in an Oracle table.


I am trying convert a MySQL database to MSSQL, and get the error:

   " Cannot sort a row of size 9986, which is greater than the allowable maximum of 8094".

Question:  How do I determine the actual row sizes within a table?

  I've read up on "vsize", which works on an individual row at a time.  I was hoping there was a more efficient way to accomplish this, perhaps using a function.  My table is rather large.
