Access to Global variable in multiple screens

I initialize a global variable in screen1 and want to have access to it in screen 2. Some of the documentation says that I should be able to do this, other documentation says to use TinyDB to store a variable so that it can be used in multiple screens. I would prefer the first method but haven't been able to make it work. Is there a tutorial or documentation that can should me how to make the first method work?

Show us.

It's easier to stick to just one Screen, using stacked Vertical Arrangements (one .Visible at a time) instead of Screens.
