Thanks. > -Francesco Siano Francesco: Here is an example of the kind of thing that you want to do. A trivial notebook definition: In[1]:= nbook[k_] := Notebook[{Cell[ToString[k], "Text"]}] Here is how you can save a family of such notebooks In[2]:= NotebookSave[nbook[#], "MGexample" <> ToString[#]<>".nb"] & /@ Range[10, 13] Here is how you can retreive them In[3]:= NotebookOpen["MGexample" <> ToString[#]] & /@ Range[10, 13] Hope this helps.
