I know nothing about databases. Is there some advantage to using a database
that would make it worth my while to learn how to use a database?

Databases allow one to store information in related logical groups (or
tables) with the ability to search the entire logical group to find
specific information. They are very good when there is a large amount of
data to be stored and accessed.

For example an inventory and order tracking system would allow one to
enter the data about products and orders then search (query) the data
for all orders for a specific item, etc.
