The first question that pops into my mind about this is, "does the
vendor actually need 'live' (or even 'neutered live') data, and/or as
many records as the real file has, or does the vendor just need the file
structure, with just enough sample records to duplicate some problem?

When I've asked for sample files to duplicate some problem that was
breaking QuestView, I've always specifically asked customers NOT to send
"live" data, or anything beyond the minimum sample data needed to
duplicate the problem reliably.
