I have removed 10 columns from table actually table consists of 50 columns . I have executed dbcc cleantable to reclaim space but gives up below message 'DBCC execution completed. If DBCC printed error messages, contact your system administrator' .

can someone help me how to reclaim space ?

Can you explain how you know it didn't reclaim the space? Are you referring to the file sizes? If so, you would need to execute dbcc shrinkfile to reclaim space back to the disk.
