How to link a text parameter in another part file in inventor?

HI every one I am just a little bit frustrated about this that how would I link a text parameter to another part file in inventor. Means I have created a master file named "UI_MASTER". in this part file I have putted all the parameters(numeric and text both) which are user Input
In "UI_MASTER".ipt there are three parameters,
1. Plate_Type= "Single"/"Two Halves" (these two parameters is a text parameter
2. Plate_OD= 1970 mm
3. Plate_ID= 800 mm
Now I created another part file Named "PLATE" and I have successfully linked two parameters Plate_OD&ID
Now I want to create a rule in part file "Plate"that is
If Plate_Type= "Single" Then
d0= Plate_OD (This parameter is linked with part "UI_MASTER" Plate_OD)
d1= Plate_ID (This parameter is linked with part "UI_MASTER" Plate_ID)
Else If Plate_Type= "Two Halves" Then
d0= Plate_OD+50 mm
d1= Plate_ID+20 mm

End If
But the question is how I link the text parameter "Plate_Type" in Plate part file?

Can anyone help me please?

Check out this video, it shows how to link parameters from one file to another either from part to assembly, or from part to part, I hope it will be very useful
