I would like to be able to display the value of a global variable on several layouts. I have a table that is related to the main information with an X in the little box. I created a field in this table for the express purpose of holding the variable content. I tried to make the field a calculated field making it equal to the global variable and I tried set value on the field when I run the script that sets the variable in the first place. The first thing didn't work. It kept setting the value in the field to 1. The second thing sets the field right, but when I try to display the field on my layout it doesn't work. Once it worked, and then when I changed it, it kept showing the old value even thought the field changed as I used the debugging watch window to verify. What am I doing wrong please?
