    Pivot Table - "Hierarchical Filters" Available?

    Hi everyone,

    I have a question on whether Pivot tables have the ability to do a "hierarchical filter." In the attached sample, I have a few columns for food based on category, sub-category, and product. If I created a pivot out of this and use category and sub-category as the filters, the sub-category filter would contain a list of all the options, even if I were to filter to just one category.

    Please let me know if such feature is available, it'd make pivots so much more efficient!
