Err, yes - posted that before I got your reply!

Yeah, I think perhaps pg_object_size is better in some ways than pg_relation_size, however I stuck with relation because (certainly in pgAdmin world) we tend to think of pretty much anything as an object. I could go either way on that though, however Michael doesn't seem so keen.

So, one for pg_object_size, one on the fench and one against :-). Anyone else got a preference?

Regards, Dave.
