First you need to know about the concept of master data and transaction data. While loading into DSO from data source it contains only transaction data not master data. for 0material it loads only primary key and it wont load master data into it. for 0material master data you need to load using master data sourses.
for ex M001 is a material and it has navigation attributes are like 0COMPETITOR, 0DIVISION etc. when you load transaction data you will get only M001 in 0material. 0material_attr and 0material_text by using these two data sources you can load master data to 0material info object.
