It's hard to give specifics without more information. What is it exactly that you are trying to do?

Simply Rt Click on the integer & select Create -->> Local Variable, thats it... Use it elsewhere in your program. Smiley Very Happy

If you are using a state machine, here is another way to create local variables.  Create a cluster with all local variables that you need.  Wire into a shift register.  Use Unbundle to get the value and Bundle to change the value.  See code below:

In LV the way you get data from one part of a diagram to another is through a wire. If you are contemplating using local variables because the diagram is too large or the wiring is getting too messy, you have a more fundamental problem than how to access a given data value. Your code needs to be redesigned to decompose it onto reusable modules. One of the major causes of instability in a program is the presence of race conditions created by utilizing local variables.
