" > > HTH, > Jean-Marc > >  http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/functions/CellAutoOverwrite Thank you for this reply -- just what's needed. But might note: As I read the relevant documentation more carefully, it really does NOT say precisely, or explicitly, whether the False option means that the evaluation avoids overwriting old output by writing new output separately from (presumably above) existing output -- or by just not writing new output at all. And what of the quote from the more detailed documentation: "The option CellAutoOverwrite is typically set to True for styles that represent Mathematica output."? Does this mean that one should put this option not in the Input cell that does the evaluation, but in the Output cell that was previously produced (to protect it)? Or, should "represent Mathematica output" be "generate Mathematica output"?
