Eshwin, welcome to Java Ranch!
You're still stuck using VSS? You have my sympathies!

just let me know is localpath attribute is for our local project path?


Yeah, the docs aren't clear on that:

Ant docs wrote:localpath Override the working directory and get to the specified path


Clear as mud to me!

But the docs give an example and then have this helpful sentence:

Ant docs wrote:
localPath="C:\mysrc\pyproject"
. . .
It will recursively get the files which are labeled Release1 and write them to the local directory C:\mysrc\myproject.



Is the VSS repository on your PC or on a remote server? If remote, you also need to supply the serverPath attribute. See the docs for details:
http://ant.apache.org/manual/Tasks/vss.html#vssget

Try using two backslashes - at time since backslashes are used as escape characters. Example:

vsspath="$\\FunctionalAuto\\ExcelBased"

If that doesn't work, post the full vssget, along with the server location.
