If you need the variable to be global, declare it (using the Global keyword) in a general module. As far as the query criteria, it doesn't really matter what you're going to use the variable for -- if it's global, you can get to it from anywhere.

I'm a little confused as to the Static part of your question. Do you mean that you want the value stored in the variable to remain the same no matter where in your code you use it? Then, in the procedure where you are referencing the variable, simply put Static (variablename) at the top of the procedure.

Hope this helps.
