```Hi,
Here is a way to handle it:
say you want the Num Sol of an ODE as follows
In[1]:  NDSolve[{y''[x] == y[x], y[0]==y'[0]==1}, y, {x, 0, 5}]

you would the following output
Out[1]: {{y\[Rule]InterpolatingFunction[{{0.,5.}},"<>"]}}

to define this as a funtion you can define a function as follows:

In[2]: f[x_] := y[x] /. %1 [[1]]

the function f[x], valid only for 0<x<5, is basically what you are
after.

Try it,
