Pairwise testing

Has anyone tried pairwise testing as a way of identifying test data for your tests?

I’ve only used pairwise testing as a method to lower the number of tests during a run, usually because management wants to get the product released sooner than planned. Instead of '000s of permutations, I’ve only had to do tens.

Thanks @sheymouse.
Could you point me in the right direction where I can learn more about it please?

Try There’s a tutorial, more info at the background page, and free trials. Also has an extensive list of tools. And yes, pairwise testing is a way to identify test data. It has other uses too, like choosing test configurations.
