to get an excerpt of a particular post, you have to know the ID of the post and if you want to use the_excerpt(), then you have to do a wp_query to get that post from the database.

If you are going to get into this type of thing, then you should start reading the documentation at wordpress.org and/or pickup a book on wordpress so you can learn how to write your own plugin

Hi JD,
at the end i solved using <?php get_post(); ?> function:

<?php
$my_id = 239;
$post_id_239 = get_post($my_id);
echo $post_id_239->post_excerpt;
?>

Cheers
