Please could anybody explain me differences between "by formula" and "by pattern" fill methods?

The "pattern" is client side data generation language when "by formula" is server side.
That means you can use built in server functions in your "formulas" but it is database dependent. In any case formulas work faster.

However patterns are really powerful. You can define very complex data generation rules with this engine.
You can use value library, excel spreadsheets, ms access databases, expressions, groups, etc.
