Anyone know it?

I'm currently learning it. I'm going to be using it mainly for select statements and maybe some insertion type stuff.

How marketable is it? Right now I'm an HRIS analysis and my boss has said that it's practically required for analysis work. I tend to believe him because of what I've learned to do - crunching data.

Anyone have more insight into this? Anyone else use it? If so, what do you use it for?

It's simply indispensable for nearly any programmer who works with persisted (stored) data. I don't know that much about HRIS analysis but, if you want to analyze large amounts of data stored in a database, SQL is the pretty much the only way to do it.

This.
The basics of SQL are better easy to grasp too.

Yeah, SQL is important and widely used. Among the many uses, it's embedded in web sites to retrieve data to build pages upon request.
