If you're looking to declare the level of hierarchy in the RDE, you can do
so via the Level of Description column, which has a drop-down for Series,
Subseries, File, etc.

If you're looking to add hierarchy to the RDE (e.g. a row for a series,
then rows for subseries/files under it), that's unfortunately impossible
via the RDE.  The RDE can only create components at one level at a time, so
there's no way to create a series-level component and its children within a
single RDE session.  There are methods to create many components within a
series via RDE (such as starting the RDE session from the series-level
component), but there's no way to do so all within one single session.

Hope this helps,
