How to reference symbol on another chart?

I want to reference a symbol that is in a different chart. Sort of like:

 def AltSym = getSymbol(symbol linked in chart 9);
or so... Obviously, the above code does not work, but it's what I want it to do. That is, to have an indicator reference a symbol in a different chart that is linked in #9 - Sky.

Anyone have any idea how to do it? Thanks.
