Creating variables that survive cloning

I have created a database template that a number of my colleagues use. Since each user has their own confidential information in their database, I want to give everyone a cloned version. However, there are a few variables I would like to be able to create that would survive the cloning process. I can create static variables by setting up a script to run when the database is opened, but those are static variables defined in a script.

 

Haw anyone developed/considered a "core record" that would stay with the database even when cloned. As an example, obviously all of the layout information is retained, so there is a place in the database file for layout information. Could a place be found for database-wide variables that would, like the layout information, survive cloning?

 

Not urgent - just a "random thought"

 

Thanks
