Hi canybody explain to me the columns returned by the SpaceUsed SP. I just need to know what is unused and what is reserved. And more imortantly how I can use this info to determine if a table is fragmented.

They are described in BoL (under sp_spaceused)

"And more imortantly how I can use this info to determine if a table is fragmented."

You need DBCC SHOWCONTIG for that - and to read the Microsoft whitepaper explaining all the output that provides!

If you are trying to set up automated defragging of your indexes have a look at Tara's blog:

I've read BOL. It does not give me much to go on. What I am confused about is the difference between Unallocated, Reserved and Unuse Space
