It seems either you have not selected the correct data type on the 'interaction attributes', or please share screenshot about the problem.

think i might have formulate the problem wrong, but i basically wants to connect the variables in the diagram module to the global variables. by doing this will i be able to access the variable from the opc server in the panel builder software

Possible, the interaction window in CMD fetches directly parameter and variables declared for the CMT. If you want a global variable to connect to your interaction window (say to a button), then you can declare a variable of same type (as of global variable) in external variables pane. So you can browse the variable on the button in CMD editor.
