Create Sample Data Script

By Chris Morton,

This is just a demonstration on how you can use loops instead of cursors where your id columns are incremental. there is also a cursor included just to show you that either way can be used. while loops are faster than cusors so use those if you can.

this is a script that can be used to help you make your own data generation script.

there are no usage instrustions as such.
