Interesting on the allocated size. Why would one use that - to ensure that you had the space available when you ran the process that goes to maximum size? Or, you just knew you were going to grow to that and you wanted to avoid extents? I guess IBM gives us the tools to do what we want and if we misuse them then that's our choice. Preallocating space for maximum size on all tables when they're never ALL going to grow to maximum size is probably a real disk chomper.
