confuse about SQL

I created a simple program using visual basic and used ms access file for storing some data. Now I heard talk about using SQL, SQL Server, MSSQL, etc. and such related terms. I need to know what SQL really means, and how it relates to my database program. Is it a separate software like ms access for using to store a data.

I am really lost, and help is really needed.

Thank you.

Zela.

    SQL = Structured Query Language. SQL is ONLY the language used to query databases (i.e. "select * from table where foo = 1). MSAccess, SQLServer, Oracle, DB2, PostgreSQL are all databases which you can use SQL statements to get data from.
