    A navigational attribute is one that the can be used to set a filter or aggregated (subtotal, for example) or sorted.

    A display-only attribute can only be displayed, not filtered on, not aggregated for, not sorted by.

    For example ... suppose that you define Customer as a navigational attribute and Customer location (city) as a display-only attribute. You can then filter for a particular customer or a group of customers or a range of customers. You can create subtotals for each customer. You can also see what city each customer is in. But, you can not create a query that shows you sales by city unless you re-define location as a navigational attribute.

    Hope that helps.
