what are you testing? A database is a very specific thing that stores data that pertains to a given application/context, etc. Unless your testing a database tool, I don't understand why you would want random databases.

2nd Codeplex.

you can also try http://dumps.wikimedia.org/ The Wikimedia dump service.

Where raw database tables in SQL form can be downloaded.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

from management studio, you cal connect to the server , from the left pane you can expand databases -> tables and then right click and open the table

if you know the table,  you can use an insert script or select script to query the databse

Let me rephrase,
that is sample database and I am assuming you can have the pre-established queries, or qui in order to manipulate and enter that information.

And, i do not know the table. I do not know anything about that sample database

Do you the Access sample databases ? You see the data entry gui plus the database.

Thanks,

If you are talking about the advwntureWorks database from CodePlex (Microsoft), the tables are populated with sample data; the queries you can find on BooksOnline or Micorsoft msdn
