Re: Q: About Needs[] and something about Contexts

As you read in the help, you need to write Needs["context`", "file"]
if the specified context is not already in $Packages. (Note: $Packages
is different from $Path)
Context refers to the argument of the function BeginPackage that one
has to put as the first line of any package; whereas file refers to
the complete route of the package's file. So in your example you have
to write

Needs["mypack`", "D:\\putte\\kelso\\mypack.m"]

if "mypack" is the context of your package
