this seems like an easy one. i run a lot of access programs. in all of these programs, except one, i do not want to get warnings about updates/deletion/inserts. i have gone to tools>options>edit/find and unchecked the boxes under "confirm" so this does not happen. the trouble occurs when i want to run the one program where i do want the confirmations. i don't want to have to check the boxes everytime i run it and then uncheck them when i'm done so that it doesn't carry over to the other programs. i've tried doing docmd.setwarnings = true on form load and turning it off before the program closes. all i get is the following warning "you won't be able to undo the changes this action query is about to make to the data in a linked table or tables". the warning i want to see is "you are about to update 132 row(s)" which is what i see when i have the "confirm" checkboxes checked. is there a way of replicating the checking and unchecking of these checkboxes from code so that i get the desired warning message?
