Hello Larry: This seems like a question of Context[]. By this I mean if you think of a Module[] as having its own "scope" (similar to Context[]) then it is certainly possible to set a variable in the Global` context from inside a Module[] (I have done this). So it should be possible to set variable in Global` context from inside the "evaluated expression" invoked from a Manipulate[]. I have not done this yet, but I think it should work. HTH.
