How to prevent constant resetting of global field?

I realize the nature of a global field is temporary or session-based, but I've seen some uses that I can't replicate.

Is there a [non-scripted] way to preserve the values of a multi-repetition global field such that the field is not cleared when the file is opened?

Asking because Brian Dunning's Chartmaker app does something along these lines, but I don't see how any script is refilling or bypassing the field in question.

Global calculations can also work well. I don't know how they would work with the repetitions - I guess if the iterations can be calculated values or if the global calc references a standard rep field or another global. Method Genx suggests is probably what is being used here ... I'm unfamiliar with ChartMaker.

Globals, by their very nature, are stored (including global calcs). But we are talking about fairly static data here where unstoredness (is that a word?) is unnecessary. This value will populate on every User station when they open.
