    How can I get this parameter into a tag?

    Ok. I give.

    I've got embed plates in CIP columns (see screenshot, you can see the plate beyond...(green)
    In properties, the hardcoded "Elevation" parameter is displaying exactly what I need/want to see.

    Is it possible to get a tag to pick up the "Elevation" value?
    If yes, How? (Please, step by step...type s-l-o-w-l-y so I can keep up)

    If no....that would be typical for me.....seeing what I want but can't have it.

    If there IS an answer...I know it's going to come from here.

    Thanks!

    You need to set a SP in the nested family.
    Make the plate geometry attached to ref planes that are not the 2 from the template. Assign a SP to the distance between the RP at center of geometry and the RP that defines origin. SP will be by instance. Beware of directions for correct behavior when loaded in the host.
    In the host family, add the same SP, select the plate, and in properties palette, look for the tiny button on the left. Click and choose the SP you've added. The insert point of the plate must be set to the ref level of the host.
    Now you have the elevation of the plate driven by a SP in the host. Create a tag for this SP. You're done.
