BPC NW: Navigational Attribute in transformation mapping?

For the NW 7.0 version, has anyone successfully used a navigational attribute in the mapping section of an transformation file for a LoadInfoProvider package?

The validation is issuing an error - seems as though it can't recognize the technical id of the nav att.

Thanks.

    I opened a customer message and unfortunately the answer I received was that it is not supported functionality.

    The support person did forward on my request to the product development group as a request for future functionality.

    Our workaround was to create an infoset joining our transactional data w/the master data we needed. We then created a multiprovider over that infoset, and only included the characteristics/navigational attributes we needed. BPC was then able to read the multi provider and pull in the data grouped by the nav att.

    Hope that helps.
