    Unnecessary.
    Please note my corrections to your post.

    Somebody who understands 'drill down' in this context may answer your question.

    Re: Meaning

    For me, "drill down" means to examine the numbers that are below and make up the top numbers.

    Anil Giria Please note that a better title would have been Can we drill down...

    Is the same is also correct?
    Rover already corrected your sentence which started "Are both". It is "Do both".

    Do the sentences have the same meaning?
    Do the two sentences have the same meaning?
    Do the sentences mean the same thing?
    Do the two sentences have the same meaning?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
