Questions:

I need some test data for a MySQL utility that I am creating. Does anybody know where I can find one that has a similiar (if not more) amount of data as Northwind for SQL Server?

One option would be to export the actual Northwind DB to MySQL. http://www.geeksengine.com/article/export-access-to-mysql.html

FlightStats seems to be another one you could use: http://flightstats.us/about.php

The purpose of this application is to demonstrate MySQL 4.1 and some of its new and more advanced features. As MySQL matures, it is the hope that this application will also mature. Currently, the following features are used in some meaningful way:

  • Joins
  • Subqueries
  • Subqueries in the FROM clause
  • Query cache

Here’s a version of Northwind for MySQL on GitHub. The column names have been slightly altered to fit the MySQL standard.

I have tested quite all the dumps available in this thread with latest MariaDB but all of them were returning warnings or errors

searching out there I have found this

http://www.dotnettwitter.com/2011/05/northwind-database-scripts-for-sql.html

so far this is the unique Northwind for MariaDB MySQL that works like a charm

no errors, no warnings,

I link it since it is not listed in this thread
