The following sample databases are currently available for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and Microsoft SQL Server 2008:
  • The AdventureWorks OLTP database supports standard online transaction processing scenarios for a ficticious bicycle manufacturer (Adventure Works Cycles). Scenarios include Manufacturing, Sales, Purchasing, Product Management, Contact Management, and Human Resources.
  • The Adventure Works DW database demonstrates how to build a data warehouse.
  • The Adventure Works AS project can be used to build an AS database for business intelligence scenarios.
  • The Adventure Works LT database is a highly simplified and smaller sample database which is helpful for those who are new to relational database technology.

The Adventure Works LT Database is documented here.

You can view the schema diagrams without downloading them here.

Please let us know in the developer forum for this project on the Discussions tab if you would like to contribute sample databases.
