Quite often we want to consolidate query information across all databases (or all user databases). When this question is asked in forums, the usual recommendation is to either try running undocumented sp_MSForEachDB stored procedure or do a loop and use dynamic SQL. The example of such stored procedures can be found, for example, THIRD EXAMPLE – SPROC to enumerate all objects in databases.

The idea occurred to me last night that while we do need a dynamic SQL to solve this problem, we don’t really need a loop unless we need a second loop involving looping through all tables.

Table of Contents:

Indexes in all databases with their usage
Indexes in all databases with their physical stats

Here is a script demonstrating this idea – it lists indexes in all databases with their usage. This script was an answer to Help in T-SQL Query thread in MSDN T-SQL forum.

Using this same idea you can get a count of all objects in all your databases using this PIVOT query:
