Alan,
Depends on what info you want in the tag. I suspect it's easiest just to make a tag yourself, it's quite simple, just set the Family Category to Pipe Accessory Tag, and then define the Parameters you want to show up.

Cheers,

my system tells me to load the "pipe accessory tags", but when I go to look for them they are no where to be found.

You will have to create one, which is pretty easy. Go to the Application Menu (the big "R") and to New ► Family. In the Annotations folder, just select the "Generic Tag" as your Template, and once it's open, click "Family Categories and Parameters" (the icon with the image of a folder) and select "Pipe Accessories" from the list of Categories. Hit 'OK'. Now all you have to do is place a Label and then configure that Label to report the desired Parameters.

Thanks Corey D. I remember seeing this procedure somewhere in the last 3-4 months of learning Revit. But, there's been too much and i needed this reminder. I've been using Lynda.com for video training, but their outlines aren't always detailed enough and I couldn't find the subject in their outline. So, thanks.
