Need a so big as possible demo-database with real or better not real customers, invoices and products, for testing and demonstrating a program i'm writing. Anyone know if such a database is free to download somewhere?

mysql offers the following 2 sample databases:
https://dev.mysql.com/doc/employee/en/
https://dev.mysql.com/doc/sakila/en/

but nothing that includes invoices and customers, as far as I can see

from your previous question:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28964695/Sample-database-invoice.html

you got suggestions, and you could migrate the database from the other db engine to the mysql engine;

however, I am still not clear about what the real point is, because you are speaking about "demonstrating your app", so you could write your own db with sample data yourself?

you could create some dummy customers quickly by building dummy names from a list of "name fragments", and cross joining that table a couple of times are quickly get thousands of customers.
