    Hi Durga

    a "display" attribute can only be visualized, while a navigational attribute can be used as a characteristic. SO you can use a nav attribute to fileter, to dirll docwn, to delimit ... and so on. A display attribute can only be used to give extensive information about the leding characteristic.

    Hope it's clear

    hi,

    Navigational attributes allow u to further drill down / filter on infoobjects. whereas display attributes are only meant for display and no drill down is possible on them.

    A navigational attribute thus has further data associated with it. For reporting purposes a navigational attribute behaves just like another characteristic
