Sharing Variables across sub shell scripts

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I have a Main shell that runs a profile, The profile contains some variables such as Count. When I call the main shell, it loads the profile and then call another shell script. I want that inner shell script be able to access the variable count that the main shell script loaded already. How can I do that ? I tried export but only helped in one level variable import. (HowTos)
