Difference: display attribute and navigational attribute?


In an exercise, a Customer ID is created and customer name is created as an attribute (characteristic) of the Customer ID. I understand checking the “Attribute Only” checkbox to make it a “display attribute” , that is not a “navigational attribute”

a) My question is what actually is the implication?

b)Does it mean that when in BEx you can drill down from Customer ID to Customer name?

c)Or, does this have nothing to do with report?

d) What will be the consequences of creating the InfoObject Customer Name as a characteristic in its own without making it an attribute of Customer ID.
