Perhaps you should post a more complete example. It is very unclear as to what you are trying to do here. If all you are attempting to do is be able to use the interpolating function inside your module, why create the local variables xx and Y and set them to Z, the argument passed to your function? You could simply use Z[.1] where you were trying to use Y[.1]. For example, In[1]:= f = Interpolation[{1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 5}]; In[2]:= test[x_] := Module[{dummy}, Table[x[n], {n, 1, 2, .2}]] In[3]:= test[f] Out[3]= {1.,1.248,1.464,1.656,1.832,2.}
