    Create the variable as a global one. That is, don't put "local" before it. Then you will be able to access it just like any other variable.

    Okay I'll try that thank you.

    It's still printing the error in the console:
    Couldn't include file 'cl_data' (File not found) (@gamemodes/cwhl2rp/plugins/betterviewdata/plugin/entities/entities/cw_terminal/init.lua (line 7))

    any ideas?

    I want to access a lua file and varaible from:
    (@gamemodes/cwhl2rp/plugins/betterviewdata/plugin/entities/entities/cw_terminal/init.lua (line 7))

    and the lua i'm running is in:
    (@gamemodes/cwhl2rp/plugins/betterviewdata/plugin/entities/entities/cw_terminal/init.lua (line 7))
