Use

When you display a list as a hierarchy, you can show or hide subordinate data.

A hierarchy level is created in the first column from every hierarchy column (see Setting Hierarchy Columns). Each entry of a hierarchy level that contains subordinate data is indicated by a small arrow icon This graphic is explained in the accompanying text. Lower hierarchy levels are slightly indented. Data from the lowest hierarchy level is indicated by a point.
