Hi Dan,

<snip> How do you guys deal with warnings and letting people know that
data is dummy</snip>

I would agree with Asif and Luther in that you could flag dummy data
with an additional database field. You could use colour to emphasise
this, say a red background, with an ovbious warning message. This would
use little database overhead or extra programming, and would be easy
enough to implement with stylesheets (if you are using a web interface).
