Persistent global variable in a multi-user environment

Post

How do I make a global variable that is not user-specific in a multiuser environment--one whose value doesn't reset when a user closes Filemaker?

 

For example, I want to have a global variable that keeps track of the current quote number in my quotes database.  I would use an incrementing serial number but I allow users to create "revisions" so multiple quotes can have the same quote number--so therefore I can't use a serial number.
