Group By nested too deep...

Okay, suffice it to say that I do not understand some of the business rules that we have... HOWEVER...

I have been looking through the docs in a futile attempt to figure out the answer to a question posed by one of our developers. It appears that we have a business requirement that calls for a Group by to have upwards of 50 different columns IN the group by list and it is giving her an error.

I didn't know there was a limit on what you could group by (only the resulting horrendously ugly sort that would occur). Anyone have a pointer to doc on what those limits might be?
