We have a client that "owns" the data on our server.   They are asking us for said data but we don't want to just give them a database backup as that we essentially be handing them a huge chunk of building the system themselves (which they are looking to do)

Any advice on how to give them a "data pull" without handing them the actual table structures and without it taking a ton of manual effort to "obfuscate" it?

Obviously, I know how to leave out the SP's and Functions but SP's can easily be generated automatically via scripts.
