Abstract: Let A be a commutative semisimple F-algebra with identity, and let $ {D_0},{D_1}, \cdots $ be a system of derivations from A into the algebra of all continuous functions on the spectrum of A. It is shown that the transformations $ {D_0},{D_1}, \cdots $ are necessarily continuous. This result is used to obtain a characterization of derivations on $ {\text{Hol}}(\Omega )$ where $ \Omega $ is an open polynomially convex subset of $ {C^n}$.
