Edit the fields as appropriate; the information entered can only reflect the value types that have been defined by the tag's Tagged Value Type.

There are six types of value field for a Tagged Value:

'Open' fields, in which you can type any appropriate value
Structured Tags, where you do not directly edit the composite value but expand the tag to show the component tags and edit the component values in 'open' fields; the composite value updates as you click off the component field
'Drop-down list' fields, where you click on the drop-down arrow to select from a discrete list of possible values such as M or F, or Win, Lose or Draw
'Spin' fields, where you click on up or down arrows in the field to increase or decrease the value within certain limits
Checklist fields, where  you click on an ellipsis ( ... ) in the field to display the Check List dialog, which lists a set of items that can be selected by ticking the checkbox against each item; if any checkboxes are not selected the value of the tag is Incomplete, and when all checkboxes are selected the tag value is Complete
'Further detail' fields, where you click on an ellipsis ( ... ) in the field to display a dialog in which you enter information (such as notes) or indicate a source of further information (such as a classifier)

Notes

To override a Tagged Value defined in a parent element, edit the value in the from <parentname> compartment of the Tagged Values window
 
Once this has been done the tag is moved into the selected element's Tagged Values; this does not affect the Tagged Values defined in the parent element
