USE AdventureWorks;

 

SELECT   a.SalesOrderID,

         LineTotal='$'+CONVERT(varchar,convert(money,a.LineTotal,1)),

         PercentOfBase = CONVERT(DECIMAL(8,1),100.0 * a.OrderQty / b.TotalQty )

FROM     Sales.SalesOrderDetail a

         INNER JOIN (SELECT   SalesOrderID,

                        TotalQty = sum(OrderQty)

               FROM     Sales.SalesOrderDetail

               GROUP BY SalesOrderID) b

           ON a.SalesOrderID = b.SalesOrderID

ORDER BY a.SalesOrderID DESC,

         a.LineTotal DESC;

        

/*

SalesOrderID      LineTotal   PercentOfBase

75123             $159.00     33.3

75123             $21.98      33.3

75123             $8.99       33.3

75122             $21.98      50.0

75122             $8.99       50.0
