Object attribute overwriting

Hi - I'm trying to use an object attribute sourced from the initial shape to drive calculations. The attribute is present in the script; when I select a shape and change the source of the attribute parameter to the shape, using the inspector, it overwrites the value attached to the initial shape....losing me the value!

Am I approaching this wrong? I've got it to work before, wondering if this is a glitch.....?
