functions in packages

I am new to Mma so please forgive me if this is a FAQ.  I have written a 70
line function which calcuates a nonparametric skew-corrected standard
deviation.  The function works perfectly when entered directly into a
notebook, but I want to include this function in a package of analytical
spectroscopy/chemometrics functions that I have written.  When the function
is placed into the package it seems to refuse to calculate some of the
lines and instead returns them symbolically, which crashes the function in
later steps. I have directly copied the function from the package into a
notebook and it works perfectly outside of the package.  I have racked my
brains trying to figure out what is wrong to no avail.  Do any of you have
any ideas or similar experiences?  I'd appreciate any help.
