record count of every table
I need to find out the no of records in each table under a particular user and there are around 3000 tables under that user. Now what is the best way to get the tablename and the record count of every table under that user.
Any hints in this regard.....

a long way of doing it, and probba;y not very efficient either, but it works
set serveroutput on size 200000
cursor tabs is select table_name from tabs;
for tab_record in tabs loop
fetch tabs into tabname;
exit when tabs%NOTFOUND;
dbms_output.put_line('Counting from ' ||tabname);
execute immediate 'select count(*) from '||tabname into tempcount;
dbms_output.put_line('Count = ' || tempcount);
Set Head off
Set Feedback off
Set Trimspool on
'Select Count(*) from '||Table_Name||';'
Owner = 'SCHEMA_NAME'
Set Head on
Set Feedback on

Dear abhaysk and davey23uk,
Thanks for your reply.
It was very usefull indeed.
the one problem is that wont give you the table name, just a count from it
A better way is to query user_tables.
This will solve the issue completely.
Just got that idea..
If you Analyze all your tables with COMPUTE STATISTICS (rather than ESTIMATE) then you can look at the NUM_ROWS field in your USER_TABLES (or DBA_TABLES) to see the table_name and the row count. If you are using CBO it might even help your overall performance to have current statistics.
Better still, use DBMS_STATS and do it in parallel:
EXEC DBMS_STATS.GATHER_SCHEMA_STATS('MY_SCHEMA', degree=>10, cascade=>TRUE);
SELECT table_name, num_rows
ORDER BY table_name;
I wrote something similar that runs nightly on our databases. It gathers counts, number of extents, size and then stores it all to a table so you have a nice history.
It's not rocket science but can be usefull for spotting trends and figuring out when a table increased in size.
Feel free to use it and hack it to death.
