    Hi Ashwin,

    The main reason why a attribute is made "navigational" is that you can then drill down on that characteristic in your reports whcih is not possible when the attribute is a display attribute. You would need to make the attribute navigational both in the info-object and in the data target as well.

    Refer this link:

    Hope this helps.

    Bye

    Hi,

    Related objects grouped together as Attributes to avoid redundent data in cubes.

    Ex: 0mat_group is attribute of 0material . while loading data to cube we need not to load 0mat_group,if we load 0material we can get the 0at_group as master data .

    Display attribute is one which is used only for display purpose in the report.Where as navigational attribute is used for drilling down in the report.We don't need to maintain Nav attribute in the cube as a characteristic(that is the advantage) to drill down.

    Hope it helps ..
