Recently I found from this group how to create file.m from file.nb if 
I didn't do it initially.  I thought the method was to select the 
notebook and use Format/Options to set 
NotebookOptions/FileOptions/AutoGeneratedPackage to Automatic.  I 
think this is what worked for me last week.  Now in a similar 
notebook having initialization cells this does not work.  When set 
AutoGeneratedPackage to Automatic,  Evaluate Initialization and save 
the notebook, no file.m appears.  What have I forgotten?

By the way, why can we access the apparently same info through 
Edit/Preferences and Format/Options?

Thanks, Bill Marks
