I am opening a number of excel files and reading ranges
from many pages and inserting them into a DB.

This all being done from VB6.  

My problem is that I cannot seem to disable the warning
message and dialog prompts that surface when certain xls
files are opened.

I have tried the following lines of code with no success.

xlApp.Interactive = False
xlApp.DisplayAlerts = False

Is there another way to kill these warnings.  This is a
process that runs on its own.

You need to use the automationsecurity property of the application and set it to low.

Actually, I had this question answered by another developer in another forum - the answer was to set an argument of the workbook.open method.  This relazed the warnings to a no-show status...

Thx anyway.

I have this question answered by another developer in another forum - the answer was to set the UpdateLinks argument of the Workbook.open method to 0.

the other macro arguments seemed to be gone after this suggesting that perhaps the

xlApp.Interactive = False
xlApp.DisplayAlerts = False

commands were working for those alerts..

Thx to anyone that tried to help me.
