compute Employees where DeptName = "Sales" \
evaluate (let MaxSal = $max(Salary)) \
(let MinSal = $min(Salary)) \
(let MaxSalF = $max(Salary where Sex = "F")) \
(let MinSalF = $min(Salary where Sex = "F"))
At the end of this operation, MaxSal contains the highest salary paid to any employee in Sales; MinSal contains the lowest salary paid to any employee in Sales; MaxSalF contains the highest salary paid to any female employee in Sales; and, MinSalF contains the lowest salary paid to any female employee in Sales.
