Global Variables suffer amnesia when using Filemaker remotely

Post

I wrote a job tracking database for our manufacturing operation. It uses a table of Global variables to store serial numbers that are automatically updated when an item is manufactured and serialized in a script. Everything works fine when I use filemaker on the host computer. But when a user opens the file remotely and closes it sometime later all the changes in the Global variable are lost. I added a "lock recored" step in the script that sets the serial number but to no avail.
