You can create a local characteristic that takes its properties and attributes from a central master InfoObject.
You can create a local characteristic that takes its attributes and most of its properties from a master InfoObject. This is always non-time dependent and non-language dependent, even if the master InfoObject is time-dependent and language-dependent. If the Master-InfoObject has texts, texts can also be defined for new values in the local characteristic. Existing texts cannot be overwritten. You can load data into the local characteristic using a file (CSV or Microsoft Excel) or by entering the data manually.
You can also define additional attributes. The additional attributes are stored locally.
The local characteristic can only be used in local providers and in local CompositeProviders in the same workspace. In the local provider, you can assign an InfoObject to a column. When doing this, you can choose whether the original characteristic or the local characteristic should be assigned. In the local CompositeProvider, you can choose whether the original characteristic or the local characteristic should be assigned.

You can specify the header that contains the field names. If you do not specify anything, the first row is used as the header.
Enter the first data row if it deviates from the default setting (in the default setting, the first data row is in row two).
For CSV files: Make settings for how separators, decimals, date and field separators are displayed. The field separator sign can be used to set special characters in the date field. If the field separator is contained in the date itself, it has to be set twice in the date field.
For the date, the format that the dates in the file are in has to be taken.
By choosing Display Data, you can see where the first data row begins, and how many headers there are.
The name for the local characteristic is made up as follows: 3L<workspace prefix><name of the reference characteristic>. You can change the generated name, but the prefix (3L<workspace prefix>) cannot be changed. Enter a description.
