    See the database software listed here:

    SQL is fairly easy in my opinion, but it's command based.  Most products do have tools, but most of the time, you're running commands in the database, for example:

    SELECT field1, field2, field3 FROM Table WHERE field1 = "xyz" ORDER BY Field3

    I too would suggest using MySQL.  After installing it, you might want to pick up SQLYog too.  It is a great front end for MySQL and allows for batch SQL's.
