Create Reference Value File

A Reference Value File (*.rvf, or RVF) is required for use with EDGE formats because EDGE is a stand-alone application and does not connect to an EQuIS database where Reference Values are stored. Reference Values allow the user to define the Look-Up values, Locations, and Analyte Groups used by EDGE on Field Devices.
