Detecting Unused Tables in SQL Server

Hello everyone,

In this article, I will try to give information about detecting unused tables in SQL Server.

In SQL Server, you may want to detect unused tables in some cases.

You can easily do this using the code below.

SELECT tablolar.name AS TabloAdi,
       bolumler.rows AS KayitSayisi
FROM sys.tables tablolar
    INNER JOIN sys.partitions bolumler
        ON tablolar.object_id = bolumler.object_id
WHERE tablolar.name NOT LIKE 'dt % '
      AND tablolar.is_ms_shipped = 0
      AND bolumler.rows = 0
GROUP BY tablolar.name,
         bolumler.rows;

When you run the above code, you will see a result similar to the one below.
