Well, for whatever reason and probably accidentally, \include did on my 
testing grounds. The only problem I had was that since the actual parts 
of the book are in different folders, I cannot use a standard 
\include{mypreamble} but have to use 
\include{../FolderPartIsIn/mypreamble} which is not a big deal and since 
Goedde's suggestion voids the issue, this is the way I will be going.

Grateful regards
