I've been tasked with building a report on an unfamiliar database. Most of it is pretty straight forward but the sales items are categorised in a very strange way and I can't get my head around where to start. Any advice or help would be appreciated.

The sales items are in a straight forward table.

Itemid, Catid, Price, PLU

Ie,
5, 58, 6.70, 667

The system has a hierarchical category system but all held within a single table! And this is what I have a problem with. The items CATid points to a low level category, such as 58 soups (catlevel 5). But I need to work out which category of level 2 this belongs to? I can’t even work it out in my head, let along the SQL of it yet.
