Is there a way to have functions inside packages define global variables? Specifically, is there a way to have a function that imports a data set and then cuts it up and defines the pieces as variables that I can access with other functions I've written in a notebook. For instance, if I always want it to take the dates from the data and define them as variable called Dates or whatever. ________________________________________ This E-Mail (including any attachments) may contain privileged or confident= ial information.
