In your notebook, define a cell at the beginning with the Initialization
tag on (Cell/Cell Properties/Initialization Cell) Define your notebook
options such that inialization cells are read on the opening. This cell
should contain:
SetDirectory@
  DirectoryName@
    "your notebook path"
You can enter the notebook path with (Input/Get File Path) Hope this
helps,

Objet:	[mg10509] loading a mathematica file along with opening a
Notebook


Linux / X environment
Mathematica 3.0.1.1

How can you automatically load a Mathematica file from the same
directory as a notebook when the notebook is opened and evaluated? The
directory that the notebook is in is not necessarily your current
working directory or in $Path.

I want some Initialization Cells to do this loading, without the person
opening the notebook having to do anything special.  But I can't seem
to find a way to ask Mathematica what directory a notebook was found
in?  It seems like this should be easy?

Thanks for any pointers,
