Hello Andre, no solution. The notebook contains no Mathematica commands it contains the markup for the document ! So the input x={1,2,3} is in Cell[] like Cell[ RowBox[{"x","=","{","1","2","3","}"}] ,"Input"] You may read the Notebook with nb= <<test.nb and use nb /. Cell[expr_,"Input",___] :> ToExpression[expr] to evaluate the contents of the input cells but result will not be a evaluated notebook ! The usual way is to write a plain text file with the Mathematica commands and write a log file os the session. Several log-file packages are on MathSource and Roman M"ader has two (one for automatic Notebook creation) in the third edition of "Programming in Mathematica".
