folks

here is a hierarchy in oracle

SELECT LPAD(' ',2*(LEVEL-1)) || TO_CHAR(location) s
  FROM location
  START WITH location ='12000'
  CONNECT BY PRIOR location = parent;

AS  you see the table is called location,my asset table also has its own hierarchy,but in affect has a relation to the location table location.location =asset.location,below is its own hierarchy
 
  SELECT LPAD(' ',2*(LEVEL-1)) || TO_CHAR(ASSETNUM) s
  FROM asset
  START WITH assetnum ='AGV314'
  CONNECT BY PRIOR assetnum = parent;

 how do i join both selects?to show all locations as all its assets in one hierarchical query?

all help will do
