SQL (Structured Query Language) is the lingua franca of the database world. While there may be proprietary languages used by different applications, most of them speak SQL, and certainly the most powerful ones use this. When constructing SQL statements, it's possible to be very precise in getting what you want from a database. Unfortunately, sometimes the syntax can get pretty complicated, and it's easy to know what you want and maybe a little harder to get the result you're looking for. There are tools out there that can help you with some of the more complicated queries, or to give you a hand if you're only an occasional SQL user and can't put your finger on just the right syntax.

SQL Buddy is a web-based tool that lets you easily manipulate your databases. With an intuitive interface, you don't have to memorize tons of arcane commands to get work done. Add and drop tables, Add a column. Tweak an entry. There now, that wasn't so hard, was it?
