David, Thank you very much for your time and explanations....Also, Yves, Thank you too! OK, Here's what happened since then. I made packages and tried to use Get funciton, but was having same issues as mentioned above. I saw this nice little thing called, "Cell Properties" that had "Initialization Cell" property to be unchecked/checked. Now, I recall that David made a brief mention of that. I never knew what it was for. So when I decided to make an Initialization Cell. It fixed all of my problem right there. It automatically asked me if I wanted "autosave package" based on the notebook I was making. I said, "SURE!"...and started to make packages like there's no tomorrow. The result was phenomenally much better program (notebook, with multiple packages if you prefer). 18 packages, to be exact. :) Once I got all of these 18 packages to have Initialization Cell, the values are automatically fed into the executing notebook. I decided to time the program... original "BASIC GOTO LOOP procedure" took 4.657 seconds. The new package-based one took 4.172 seconds. I was very surprised that new one outperformed the old one, even if I call up the same package number of times in DO loop to recalculate the values. Now, I don't have to scroll 15 pages long of the code up and down anymore and getting lost in loops! Now, I know exactly what each packages are supposed to do, so all I have to do is pull up the related notebook, make necessary adjustment or corrections, save it, and the rest is taken care of. In light of this, I just wanted to say thanks! For my indulgence, anyone can tell me how to get the Mathematica5 to generate a separate graph that pops up like NotebookCreate does? What I have is several plots being generated, but kept delayed (plot1:=(function1), plot2:=(function2)) and every time I do Show[plot1,plot2], it shows all three graphs (two separate graphs, and one merged plot). I don't want to see separate plots, and it would be great if I could keep the executing Notebook from scrolling, and have graphs pop out instead? Again, thank you guys!
