Variable vs Global

You may not believe this, but it's a fact: I've written a very elaborate File and not used a single variable. BUT, I make strong use of Globals. The problem is that I don't know how to use / write variables. I can read them ( single $ is local variable, contained to one table, double $$ is a global variable, seen throught the file - very much like a true Global.)


I'm told that variables are much easier to use and that I should use them more. Well, I'd love to, but I need to start with a course on variables less than 101 - something like 089.


If there is anyone out there in FM land who could push me in the right direction.... I'd be very grateful and endebted to you.


It may not be as complicated as i'm making it. I sometimes do that to myself.
