Storing Global Fields

I need to have a set of universal, Supervisor-defined values for my database. I want a person with appropriate access to be able to go to a special layout and edit these values. How do I store them? Globals don't seem to be the answer ... but maybe I just don't understand their particulars:

How do I store a universal user-defined value? I want one user to edit the value, and that value to be stored ... anyone else accessing the database would now see the new value in any record.

My understanding of Globals are that they are a session-and-user specific field in a multi-user context, ie. that they disappear when that user closes the session.

Global field are user specific and not suit able for your needs. I make a special file that has only one record. I make a key field constant that has value that is not 1. I also have this field in each file with this key auto entered. Use realtionships to get the info from this file to the others.
