    Hello @Jzerf Marqui ,

    Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    Yes, use widgets to create that logic.

    Example have 1 widget called cellNumber, then create a parameter/variable based on that and use it in each cell, eg if cellNumber = 1 then logic in the cell, and to this for every cell.

    Then when you call the notebook pass whatever cell number you want to execute.
    Please find a basic example as shown below:

    Notebook Cell Logic:


    Run Notebook Cell:
