I want to write a Report for tag data. So far, so good...
That reports tag data, but not where they come from. We need to know what the tag belongs to, otherwise it's hard to make sense of the Report.
How do I include the ID of the host element (the element to which the tag is attached) in that report?

This is amazing. We are bringing in "Expression Column" in report for upcoming release. You can do many scenarios with it.
As far as Tag reporting goes, let Carl Myhill file a defect. Tags are pure texts. Unlike textfields, getting it working with EC is quite cumbersome. If you could help to me get this scenario with ItemTypes or some other elements, it will be helpful for to speed it up for tags.

Tag element values are C-style variants. They can store string, integer, double or binary values. String, integer and double values display as text.
Numeric values are not formatted. It's quite common to see a tag that contains a double value displaying an absurd number of decimal places: 123.5678901234567890123456789.
Tags remain useful in MicroStation CONNECT because they play well with AutoCAD. Despite the numerous benefits of Item Types, they are not a complete substitute for tag elements.

A tag stores the Element ID of the host element. The host ID is a property of a tag element...
Note the last line.
I can simulate this issue. Added bug to our backlog.
Bug 860861: Reverse relation from Reports is not fetching Tag instance information along with elements
Do we have an answer for how to create a report with more then one tag? I want to do a report on some cells that have 2 tags attached to it but I cannot make the column select different tags is only picking one.
