You may want to consider doing the following:
1) Select the cells in your notebook that contain expressions that
you want to evaluate.
2) Click on the front end menu command sequence
Cell -> Cell Properties -> Initialization Cell
3) Use the front end menu command
File -> Save As Special -> Package
This will save the notebook with only the Initialization Cells
4) Paste the following Cell expression in a notebook and
click "Yes" on the dialog box that results.
Cell[TextData[ButtonBox["Learn more about batch mode",
ButtonData:>"Using Kernel Directly (X)",
This will create a hyperlink that will give you instructions
for running Mathematica in batch mode.
5) If you would like the output from the batch session to be logged
as a notebook as well, you may want to consider using Roman Maeder's
NotebookLog.m package that is discussed in his book _Programming
The package comes on the Mathematica installation in directory
