Mark - thank you for this.  The problem is that I'd like to sit quite 
close to the schema and manipulate the generation of the test data. 
(This is because a straight representation won't suit my needs.)

However, if I get the chance I'll look at these tools, in case they can 
help me.  Thank you for the suggestion.
