Abstract: Suppose M is a real-analytic submanifold of complex Euclidean n = space and consider the following question: Given a real-analytic function f defined on M, is f the restriction to M of an ambient holomorphic function? If M is a C.R. submanifold the question has been answered completely. Namely, f is the trace of a holomorphic function if and only if f is a C.R. function. The more general situation in which M need not be a C.R. submanifold is discussed in this paper.

A complete answer is obtained in case the dimension of M is larger than or equal to n and M is generic in some neighborhood of each point off its C.R. singularities. The solution is of infinite order and follows from a consideration of the following problem: Given a holomorphic function f and a holomorphic mapping $ \Phi$, when does there exist a holomorphic mapping F such that $ f = F \circ \Phi $?
