Tip #1409: Count records for all tables in Dataverse

Want to count all records in all Dataverse tables like a boss? Say no mo.

SELECT 
 CONCAT(
 'SELECT ''', name, ''' AS TableName, 
 COUNT_BIG(1) AS CountOfRows FROM ', 
 name,
 ' UNION')
FROM 
	sys.tables
WHERE
	TYPE = 'U'
AND SCHEMA_ID = 1
  • Copy all results (Ctrl-A), open New Query window (Ctrl-N), paste (Ctrl-V)
  • Scroll to the end, remove the last word UNION and add ORDER BY 2 DESC line
  • Execute
  • You are welcome

Note: the execution may timeout if your Dataverse is of any decent size. Use trial/error approach to figure out executable chunks – you probably know your largest tables anyway.
