Create Reference Data Tagged Values

When working with Tagged Values, you might want to use a Reference Data Tagged Value, which is used to return the values held in an Enterprise Architect reference table. The base types for such Tagged Values (the type you call in when you create a tag in the Tagged Values window) can be easily created specifically for your model, as you can base the customized Reference Data Tagged Value types on a range of predefined Tagged Value types and filters.
