What is the significance of cross validate segments in the Key flexfield structure screen

Cross validation (also known as cross segment validation) controls the combinations of values you can create when you enter values for key flexfields. A cross validation rule defines whether a value of a particular segment can be combined with specific values of other segments.

Cross validation is different from segment validation, which controls the values you can enter for a particular segment.

When a user finishes entering segment values in a flexfield popup window, the flexfield checks whether the values make up a valid combination before updating the database. If the user entered an invalid combination, a diagnostic error message appears, and the cursor returns to the first segment assumed to contain an invalid value.

What is the significance of reference field in a DFF?

Based on the value selected in a particular field,if you want to pop-up DFF segments, then reference field will be used.
eg:you have a field called Item. if you choose Computer as an Item, then in DFF segments you want to show Computer Brand name, Size.
If you choose TV as an item , then in DFF you may want to show TV name,TV Color,TV Inches etc
in reference field, we enter :Item as Reference, then in context values,we enter the Item Values and then respective Segment names
