I have a really trivial question, but nevertheless am stuck. Within a notebook file, how do I execute an external notebook and keep all the results in memory? For example I have 5 files, main1.nb main2.nb main3.nb main4.nb main5.nb each of which must call common.nb which contains code that is common to all 5 main files. It seems like this should be easy to do but I cannot find an appropriate command (Get seems like it is intended for this purpose, but perhaps I am not using it correctly).
