Why do you ask this in this forum? Don't you think the user knows the right answer? IMHO, a stupid question doesn't exist. So, you are not showing a failure to the user when you ask him to clarify. Don't regard this answer as a non-serious debunking of your question. I'm serious. The community at this forum can impossibly know the answer. Your user can. Maybe he wants 10% of the data sent to test? or all, but scrambled to protect privacy of the customers in the database? Or just a couple of tables?
