"Advanced Data Generator 3" is a powerful tool to generate so-called "test data" in the databases for your applications. It includes a library of real-life-like data and has several features that make the test data as real as possible.

 

You can connect to any ODBC or ADO datasource, making the Advanced Data Generator a very generic tool for all database engines.

 

 

The Advanced Data Generator supports "Templates" for column/parameter settings, allowing you to re-use specific data entries.

 

It also comes with a library of real-life-like data, for example (but not limited to):

male first names

female first names
company names
US state codes
city names

 

For more information on how to generate specific (types of) data, see the How To topic.
