This is not a question of notebook vs program - the problem (I assume) 
is that your program is in a package. You must add a usage statement 
(before the private section of your package) for both 'SolutionForm' and 
'Implicit' - even if the descriptive string is just empty!

I sense you are still fairly new to Mathematica, and it might be better 
to avoid creating your own packages for a bit. You can still create .M 
files and read them in even if they only contain definitions without a 
package structure.
