Suppose you're tasked to report on sales figures for the company's sales force. The report has to include the individuals' percentile contribution to the team, region, and company sales in addition to the raw sales numbers. Team percentile contribution to region and total company sales and region percentile contribution to total sales are also needed. You could run multiple queries—one to get the company totals, another to calculate the region totals, a third for the team totals, and finally a detail query by salesperson.

No sweat, right?
