"Global" field in report


Hi, I have been working on a Filemaker solution for a while now and have created a reporting tool (essentially a seperate layout that has fields that sum up particular fields in the database for the current fiscal year). It recently came up that having the functionality to see a report from a different fiscal year would be useful and I am trying to figure out how to do that. Primarilly, it would be helpful if there is a way to create some sort of field that is outside of a set of records, so to say each record would refer to one central bit of information that could be changed by the user. If this isn't possible, another way I could see this working is if there a field could be designated to change accross all records to reflect a user input to that field in any record. I am also very open to other ideas.
