Sorry - I thought you were having problems getting the "it" variable
from your external, so I figured the easiest thing to do was to put
the answer in a global variable and retrieve it that way. Maybe I'm
misunderstanding your question.

Obviously I don't see all the code context here, but I would think
that a better way to do this would be to get the user input from
Transcript, then make a call into the external, passing the user
string as an argument.
