As a future accountant why do I need to learn SQL? - stika - 06-19-2010 12:38 AM

I am currently studying accountancy, and from what I heard we will be learning microsoft acess, which makes sense.

But one of the professors said casually during the last class that

"can anyone tell me why do you need to learn SQL in accountancy"

"Is there any situation in which an accountant would need to use SQL?"

I know the basics of microsoft Acess, but that's it.

However my proffessor specifically said "SQL"

So I'd like to hear it from your point of view, what do you think?
