Before that mechanism was introduced, if you accidentally sent a vector of 10^7 elements to the FE, it was very hard to recover at all. All you had to do was accidentally omit one semicolon. There are almost certainly better ways to do what you are trying to do - for example, how about exporting your data in a suitable format, and importing it into the other notebook? Why not describe what you are trying to do in more detail. David Bailey http://www.dbaileyconsultancy.co.uk
