    Hi xys redd,

    the difference is, that a display attribute (basically any attribute of a characteristic) can just be displayed in a report. There is no filtering, no drill down, no drill through ... possible for the attribute. A navigational attribute can be used (if also activated at the dataprovider) for filtering, drill down, drill through ...

    If a navigational attribute of a characteristic is not activated on the dataprovider as a nav. attribute it can only be treaten like a display attribute in reports.

    Hope this helps!

    If you need some more information let me know.

    regards

    Siggi

    Hi,

    Just to add to that..A navigational attribute will behave like as itf it is a characteristic in the cube.
