Hi, in Test[c_,x_, y_, f_] := ... x is *not* a variable, it is a pattern named x and it would be a desaster if the pattern would mixed with a global variable. You mean f = x + y; Test[c_, x1_, y1_, f_] := Block[{x = x1, y = y1, result}, result = c*f; (*do something using f*) result] Regards Jens Frank Deicke wrote: > Hello, > I want to assign different variables to a module.
