I have a table that has 1 million rows populated with number 1..1000000.

     create table foo(x number);

I use this for testing our various client software.

     select * from foo order by x;

Is there a way I can get the same select results without having to pre-populate a table?

This was all I could think of which works but might not scale... :-)

    select 1 from dual union select 2 from dual union ...;

many TIA!
