I don't use Fusebox, but if you want a variable accessible in Custom Tags and include files, use the Request scope. <CFSET Request.DSN="MyDatasource"> This is a new scope, I believe first available in 4.5.

I have an index file with an include for app_globals, which contains my datasource definition. Every fuseaction is either cfincluded or cfmoduled into the index page though a case statement. Why is it that a page that is cfmoduled cannot access the datasource wheras the page that is cfincluded can? It seems a shame of have to include app_globals in every query page, when (to my mind at least) the point is to create a minimalist, highly organized pseudo-object orient site. I'd like to keep a single include of app_globals in the index page, yet have the datasource available to every page. Can someone suggest a method?
