My client has asked me to include a lengthy example, which includes many features, in the online help. Initially I thought of this example as a basic tutorial. However, while the interface for the Web-based tool will not change, the data in terms of percentages and dollar figures shown in the charts and tables will change.

How can I create a basic tutorial that does not include the correct data that the user will see if they complete the tutorial correctly? If I insert charts or tables that will not be included in the final release of the software, I think the user will think that they've completed the tutorial incorrectly. The final data will not be available until November and my deadline is September 30.

Any ideas?
