How about this. Old skool office with a filing cabinet. Old skool boss says to old skool secretary "Miss Jones, I have a filing task for you. Can you please dig out the files for all of the customers who've bought something worth at least 50 quid from us this year, and remove the ones who come from Swindon. If any of the remaining ones are companies we've also bought something from, please bring me files on those purchases too. Thanks dear".

SQL is how you tell a computer to do this unambiguously, when there isn't a human to work out what you actually mean.

And the pikeys would have weighed in the filing cabinet.

Uh, I still do!

That's the problem with you kids with your java script, xml / htlm5+ , some of us have to maintain the old stuff the runs most of the world while you go off and play with blue sky stuff! ;)
As I'm reading this I'm literally coding a website in HTML to eventually link with another xml project 😂

Seems to sometimes go hand in hand with a relational database such as Oracle or Ingres. Not sure about DB2.
Ingres? Haven’t heard that for 25 years Good Googling!
