Unanswered: Table Size estimation
I have collected the record count for some of our major transaction tables for one week . Can you please let us know to estimate the table size growth based on the record count available.

Based on this how to determine table size and its approximate growth (for eg: 30 % increase)?
Why don´t you put those values into a table and do a program which can make those calculations? And besides i think the table is decreasing, am i right?
As you said the record count is decreasing . Whatever i have mentioned in question is the table count. I saw a formula to calculate the size based on the number of rows (i.e count).
Size in MB = (nrows*rowsize)/(1024*1024)
Can you please let me know if this is the right approach to calculate the table size in MB? From the value that is obtained can i multiply it by 30 %?
I use the oncheck command line utility to perform this task on an adhoc basis, otherwise I use a spreadsheet approach as Luis Santos suggests.
oncheck -pt <db_name>:<db_owner>.<table_name>
oncheck -pt production:sysadm.employees | pg <cr>
multiply "number of pages used" by your page size (AIX is 4k) to determine the approx size of the table in MB
