Variables and Window activations

Hello, I have a question: is it possible to use a global field or variable that holds different values in different windows for the same table ?

 

Why do I need it ? because my global field is a key to a relation to a separate table, and I'd like to use different key values and related records, in different copies of the same window. For example, using a script to search and modify the current set in only one of the windows.

 

Instead, as far as I know, a global field can only be global to ALL instances of a table and to ALL activations of a window.

Or possibly I’m missing an obvious solution…

 

Thanks in advance for your help
