When copying output from Mathematica, please use Copy As -> Plain text 
or Copy As -> Input text from the right click menu.

It is impossible to guess what the problem might be without seeing the 
function, but it sounds as if a semicolon were missing from somewhere.

Could you please post both the function from the notebook, and the 
function from the package file, together with a usage example (so we 
won't have to figure out what input to feed to the function)?
