    HI All,

    I am new to SSIS, I want to load temporary data (if possible table generation through query also), for

    my QA server on which i can test my cubes and all.

    is it possible to load dummy data through SSIS, how?

    is there any tool available in the market for such ETL requirement?

    There are tools available in the market such as Red Gate's "SQL Data Generator" etc. Try googling for it and I am there are many free tools available for it.

    You can also write a query to generate random test data like..

    Thanks to Jeff for the below test code:

    -- Create and populate a 1,000,000 row test table.

    -- Column "RowNum" has a range of 1 to 1,000,000 unique numbers

    -- Column "SomeInt" has a range of 1 to 50,000 non-unique numbers

    -- Column "SomeLetters2" has a range of "AA" to "ZZ" non-unique 2 character strings

    -- Column "SomeMoney has a range of 0.0000 to 99.9999 non-unique numbers

    -- Column "SomeDate" has a range of >=01/01/2000 and <01/01/2010 non-unique date/times

    -- Column "SomeCSV" contains a simple identical 10 part CSV for all rows.

    -- Column "SomeHex12" contains 12 random hex characters (ie, 0-9,A-F)

    SELECT TOP 100

    SomeInt = ABS(CHECKSUM(NEWID()))%50000+1,

    SomeLetters2 = CHAR(ABS(CHECKSUM(NEWID()))%26+65)

    + CHAR(ABS(CHECKSUM(NEWID()))%26+65),

    SomeCSV = CAST('Part01,Part02,Part03,Part04,Part05,Part06,Part07,Part08,Part09,Part10' AS VARCHAR(80)),

    SomeMoney = CAST(ABS(CHECKSUM(NEWID()))%10000 /100.0 AS MONEY),

    SomeDate = CAST(RAND(CHECKSUM(NEWID()))*3653.0+39446.0 AS DATETIME),

    SomeHex12 = RIGHT(NEWID(),12)

    FROM Master.dbo.SysColumns t1

    CROSS JOIN Master.dbo.SysColumns t2
