SQL count rows in a table

Yes, SELECT COUNT(*) FROM TableName


select sum([rows])
from sys.partitions
where object_id=object_id('tablename')
 and index_id in (0,1)

is very fast but very rarely inaccurate.


Use This Query :

Select
    S.name + '.' + T.name As TableName ,
    SUM( P.rows ) As RowCont 

From sys.tables As T
    Inner Join sys.partitions As P On ( P.OBJECT_ID = T.OBJECT_ID )
    Inner Join sys.schemas As S On ( T.schema_id = S.schema_id )
Where
    ( T.is_ms_shipped = 0 )
    AND 
    ( P.index_id IN (1,0) )
    And
    ( T.type = 'U' )

Group By S.name , T.name 

Order By SUM( P.rows ) Desc
