Dear Ilhem,

Most likely your m-file is not located in a directory on Octave's load path. 

To see what that search path is type    DEFAULT_LOADPATH   at the
Octave prompt.

To learn more about how Octave searches for m files, type   help -i  
at the Octave prompt. That invokes the online help. Then choose the  *
Functions and Scripts::  item and within that page choose the *
Function Files:: item.  There you can read more about the loadpath.

Alternatively,  read the manual:

Even though you are running Octave in Windows, remember that Octave
assumes a Unix-like directory structure.
