turn on/off warnings.

hey experts,
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?

Who is Participating?
Application.SetOption "Confirm Action Queries", False
Application.SetOption "Confirm Record Changes", False

...to turn them off.  Same thing with True to turn them back on.

DoCmd.SetWarnings False
'U'r Code
DoCmd.SetWarnings True

U can use vice versa too
