How to view the Space used by each table in database

There are situations in which you may have to list the space used by each table in the database. You can use the query below to get the space used by individual tables.
–Space used by the database

sp_spaceused

–Space used by individual tables in the database

SELECT
(row_number() over(order by a3.name, a2.name)) as SNO,
a3.name AS [schemaname],
a2.name AS [tablename],
a1.rows as row_count,
(a1.reserved + ISNULL(a4.reserved,0))* 8 AS reserved, 
a1.data * 8 AS data,
(CASE WHEN (a1.used + ISNULL(a4.used,0)) > a1.data THEN 
(a1.used + ISNULL(a4.used,0)) - a1.data ELSE 0 END) * 8 AS index_size,
(CASE WHEN (a1.reserved + ISNULL(a4.reserved,0)) > a1.used THEN 
(a1.reserved + ISNULL(a4.reserved,0)) - a1.used ELSE 0 END) * 8 AS unused
FROM
(SELECT 
ps.object_id,
SUM (
CASE
WHEN (ps.index_id < 2) THEN row_count
ELSE 0
END
) AS [rows],
SUM (ps.reserved_page_count) AS reserved,
SUM (
CASE
WHEN (ps.index_id < 2) THEN 
(ps.in_row_data_page_count + ps.lob_used_page_count + 
ps.row_overflow_used_page_count)
ELSE (ps.lob_used_page_count + ps.row_overflow_used_page_count)
END
) AS data,
SUM (ps.used_page_count) AS used
FROM sys.dm_db_partition_stats ps
GROUP BY ps.object_id) AS a1
LEFT OUTER JOIN 
(SELECT 
it.parent_id,
SUM(ps.reserved_page_count) AS reserved,
SUM(ps.used_page_count) AS used
FROM sys.dm_db_partition_stats ps
INNER JOIN sys.internal_tables it ON (it.object_id = ps.object_id)
WHERE it.internal_type IN (202,204)
GROUP BY it.parent_id) AS a4 ON (a4.parent_id = a1.object_id)
INNER JOIN sys.all_objects a2 ON ( a1.object_id = a2.object_id ) 
INNER JOIN sys.schemas a3 ON (a2.schema_id = a3.schema_id)
WHERE a2.type <> 'S' and a2.type <> 'IT'
ORDER BY a3.name, a2.name
