Hi,

Can anyone please tell me the difference between Navigational and Display attributes ?

How the report differs with selection of navigational attributes ?

Thanks in advance

Prasad.

Hi Durga

a "display" attribute can only be visualized, while a navigational attribute can be used as a characteristic. SO you can use a nav attribute to fileter, to dirll docwn, to delimit ... and so on. A display attribute can only be used to give extensive information about the leding characteristic.

Hope it's clear

hi,

Navigational attributes allow u to further drill down / filter on infoobjects. whereas display attributes are only meant for display and no drill down is possible on them.

A navigational attribute thus has further data associated with it. For reporting purposes a navigational attribute behaves just like another characteristic
