Danish term or phrase: Flettevariable
From instructions on how to use a program that extracts data from statistics files:

Afklar om der er flettevariable på tværs af flere statistikfiler i afleveringspakken som skal angives i en opmærkning af en reference under udtræk med ASTA samt over hvilke variable disse referencer skal dannes

Fremmedvariabel og referencevariabel (flettevariablene) skal hver især omkranses af enkeltapostroffer.

Husk at konsekvensrette data på en måde, så eventuelle referencer (flettevariable) stadig skal kan flette korrekt, efter denne rettelse.

It seems to be a non-standard term without many hits.

merging/merge variable
Explanation:
I think you can pretty safely back translate this to merge/merging variable. You'll find an abundance of examples and references to this term. It may be related to the term 'key' in relation to databases, but I'm not a DB specialist.
