No other tool can replace the usage and flexibilities of SQL. SQL statement provides the output of any simple or complex queries very quickly. You don't need to click anywhere or follow any steps to query the data. You just need to write the SQL query and it will provide the output in fraction of seconds.
Just imagine, if we can use the SQL statement to query the data from Excel Workbook then it will save a lot of time and also, we can run complex queries which would be practically tough to process in Excel with inbuilt query functions/steps.
