Subject RE: Include Macros Defined in a Single Directory

Seems I'm having another senior moment. No I'm not using Ant 1.8.0... next
time I will engage my brain before reading responses (or at least try to
engage my brain!). I have no reason not to upgrade, so will give this a go
when I get a chance.

thanks for pointing that out Tom. And sorry Matt I didn't read your reply
properly... [hangs head in shame].

Are you using Ant 1.8.0?

Hi Matt thanks for the suggestion.

Unfortunately import does not appear to support the <fileset> type. When
running this I get the following error: "import doesn't support the nested
fileset element". I had another hunt around the internet and found a
solution (have yet to try it but it looks like it should work). 
For anyone who is interested take a look at Question 17 at
http://wiki.apache.org/ant/AntNewbies
