Subject Re: Trying to override old definition of task emptymacro
Date Wed, 05 Jul 2006 16:38:24 GMT
Well I don't believe its actually overriding the macro def...  You get 
the same kind of warning if you attempt to reassign a property...

I mean, you could hand in data to your macrodef that denotes the type of 
work you want to perform...  I'd have to give it more thought, but I 
don't think based upon what you've described - that overriding the 
macrodef is the right thing to do
