You seem to be declaring a global inside a handler and then trying to  
access the global outside the handler without declaring the global.

Common practice is to declare global at the top of the script, and  
then it is accessible to any handler in that script.

-- stack script
Global bobtest

On openstack
   put "hey" into bobtest
End openstack

On revealbobtest
   put bobtest -- the message box
End revealbobtest

The above works because the scope of the global is the stack script  
itself, NOT the handler, whose scope expires with the termination of  
the handler.

Hope this helps
