Separate input/output files

A typical Mathematica notebook contains input and output together.
With the objective of separating input and output for convenience and
also eliminating  repeated input  commands and statements, I like to
write two separate smaller files somewhat as under:

Constant [{yi,ydi,w,tmax} = { 1.,.2, 1.,8.}];
NDSolve[{Y''[t]+w^2 Y[t]==0, Y[0]==yi,Y'[0]==ydi},Y,{t,0,tmax}];
y[t_]= Y[t] /.First[%] ;
(* above two lines to be labelled ODE *)
(* above line to be labelled  PLT*)
yi=2.; w=7. ; tmax= 4 ;
Table[ {t,y[t],y'[t]}, {t,0,tmax,tmax/15.}]//ColumnForm
(* above line to be labelled  TABL*)
(* Only tmax = 4 takes effect but not yi and w, the quantities inside
NDSolve curly barckets, do not take effect *)

yi = 1.6; w = 2; tmax= 4.;
ydi = 2.; w = 1.2; tmax= 2.5 ;
(* Contains output for ODE, PLT,TAB  for changed input parameters, lines echoed before respective outputs *)

How to make such a file separation possible? Such separation I believe
is convenient for dynamical simulation exercises.
