I am currently developing a project in Access that takes data and stores it in arrays, and then spits out an Excel Report that can be edited.  What I need to be able to do is delete sheet2 and sheet3 from the newly created object and rename Sheet1.  The following is a snipet of code that I have been using.

   Set ExcelApp = New Excel.Application
   ExcelApp.Visible = True
     
   ExcelApp.Workbooks.Add
   Set Excelbook = ExcelApp.ActiveWorkbook
   
   Set ExcelSheet = Excelbook.Worksheets("Sheet2")

   ExcelSheet.Delete
   ExcelSheet.Activate

this works for deleting but Excel wants an answer if deleting is okay, is there a param I send send like I do when I save.  Also I would like to know how to change the Sheet name from Sheet1 to like Test1.  Thanks in advance, any help is greatly appreciated.

What do you think about that?

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim ExcelApp As Excel.Application
Dim ExcelBook As Workbook
Dim intI As Integer

   Set ExcelApp = New Excel.Application
   ExcelApp.Visible = True
   
   ExcelApp.Workbooks.Add
   Set ExcelBook = ExcelApp.ActiveWorkbook
   
   ExcelApp.Application.DisplayAlerts = False
   For intI = ExcelBook.Worksheets.Count To 2 Step -1
        ExcelBook.Worksheets(intI).Delete
   Next intI
   ExcelApp.Application.DisplayAlerts = True

   ExcelBook.Worksheets(1).Name = "New Name"

End Sub
