Entering a variable from a layout which will be placed in a field from a script

Post

I am a little new to Filemaker, and have generated a non-profit database for keeping up with payments. Anyway, the problem I am having is when I want to generate a group of records based off of exisiting records - I can generate them just fine, but I want to add a date to the records from one entered in a layout.  I am having a problem with finding a way to have an input box on a layout into which I would enter a date, I then have a button I click on which runs a script to generate the records into which I want to place the date entered in the layout replacing the date in the generated records.  Hope this makes sense...  I want a variable on a layout which I can use in a script to add to a field in multiple records.
