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.

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
