@Nepal101 you cannot create a hierarchy but in the visuals, you can drop the column from both the tables, let's if you are using a line chart, on the x-axis, you can have employee and location on Aix and that will allow you to drill up and down.

@Nepal101 In matrix, you can drop columns from both the tables on the row and it will work as hierarchy.
