Seven or eight years ago, I had a contract writing training documentation
for users of a DB2 querying tool. The documentation addressed the need for
subject matter experts (chemists, researchers) to be able to construct
queries that would help them extract needed information out of the

Now there are Java and web-based GUIs that make it easier to do this, and
may require less documentation than command-line tools. In complex
environments with users of varying levels of database expertise, there is
certainly still a need for user documentation of how to extract
information from these kinds of database systems.

If you are technically inclined, you could probably also look into
situations where you can document data dictionaries, document and update
scripts used by database administraors, and write reference doucmentation
for DBAs.

Good luck
