Either, Or.

Advantages of Global Var:

Less Trouble

Quicker to initially implement

My take is that variables are best for things that are temporary, and need only be remembered for the duration of a script or a process. Globally stored fields are best for things that need to be remembered for the duration of the session, or for things that must be shown on screen, used as a relationship filter, or used for indirect record editing.
