CREATE TABLE #TempBillDetails([NumberOfRowsIndDatabase] BIGINT)

WHILE EXISTS(SELECT TOP 1 name FROM #TempBills)

BEGIN

	SELECT TOP 1 @dbName = name FROM #TempBills

				SELECT ISNULL(SUM(rowCnt),0) [NumberOfRowsIndDatabase] FROM
				(	
					SELECT
						  SUM(p.Rows) rowCnt
					FROM 
						  ['+ @ServerName + '].' + '[' + @dbName  +'].sys.objects o INNER JOIN [' + @ServerName + '].['  + @dbName +'].sys.partitions p ON o.object_id = p.object_id
					WHERE
