The smart-alec answer would be text file or as you seem to be referring to
a large amount of data, a database ;-)

In the Model View Controller way of doing things the data (model) is all in
one location so as to avoid the problems you are facing. It wouldn't matter
which field (view) was in which group (view) of whatever stack (view), the
call (controller) to get the data would be exactly the same. It's why I
moved to dbs a long time ago, even simple stacks I use a sqLite db; avoids
all these hassles plus you get a host of db bonus features thrown if for

Probably not what you wanted to hear ;-(
