Hi, > I will just copy a simple code below to describe what I am getting. > The output in the first notebook is a = a; b = b ; ... ... and I guess that what you want is that a,b,c,... have their numerical values when evaluating the other notebooks, right? > This is the former notebook ; > Do[ > { > c = 3, > nb2 = NotebookOpen["tt1.nb"], > SelectionMove[nb2, All, Notebook], > Print["k main ", k], > SelectionEvaluate[nb2], > Print["a = ", a], > Print["b = ", b], > Print["ac = ", ac], > Print["bc = ", bc], > }, > {k, 1, 1}] I haven't analyzed what exactly goes wrong, but my first guess was that the scoping of the Do-loop is the reason why k is not known to be 1 in the other notebooks (and that this is presumably what you don't like). And indeed, if you change the code so that k is a global variable, e.g.: k = 1; While[k <= 1,{ c = 3, nb2 = NotebookOpen["tt1.nb"], SelectionMove[nb2, All, Notebook], Print["k main ", k], SelectionEvaluate[nb2], Print["a = ", a], Print["b = ", b], Print["ac = ", ac], Print["bc = ", bc], k++ }] the code does something that I guess is about what you want to achieve... hth Albert
