Newby: How to create a Variable that is visible outside a package?

Newby: How to create a Variable that is visible outside a package?

I am trying to create a variable that I could actually pass from Crystal reports into flex. Now crystal has a nice option of passing this variable, but I dont know how to set this variable up in flex.

When simply defining a variable it tells me it will not be available outside the package. I assume that in order for any external program to be able to pass a value to a variable it actually should be visible outside the package?

I'm very new to flex and still going through the tutorials, but it would be super to know how I have to set up a variable in flex so I could pass a value to it from an external program and display it in a textbox orso.

Any help appreciated.
