If there is another >way or better way to make a ***.m file, Please let me know. Hi Chongdae, I'm not shure, what you mean. I'm working with Mathematica 3.0. When I write a Mathematica-Package (*.m), framed by BeginPackage and EndPackage, I convert the cells that contain the executable parts of the package (in general I have just one) to Initialization cells by selecting them and choosing: Cell | Cell Properties | Initialization Cell. Then I save them by choosing: File | Save as special | Package Format. The Package can simply be called at any point of any other Package or from somewhere else by: << *.m (load and evaluate) Of course first you have to set the correct Directory. Bye Witold
