overwrite a table without confirm to an external MDB

I want to export, with a macro or code, a few tables or make table queries to an external MDB.

If I do a make table query or macro CopyObject or code DoCmd.CopyObject to make or copy a table to external mdb and the table exists in the external mdb I get a 'already exists, overwrite?' confirmation.  I don't want to see these confirmation.
 
Is there a way to override this? I can delete a table using code within the current db without confirmation, in order to then recreate it in current db so don't get this message. But can't seem to do same in an external db.

tx,

Luke

I think you can setwarnings to false for this...

ok, in the macro (and how) or in code (and how) ?

Either
In marco (setwarnings then in bottom window put No) - it's in the dropdown list

In code
DoCmd.SetWarnings (False)

Using a macro is probably easier if you're unsure of coding. (and its dead simple)
At the end of the macro, put setwarnings to yes though
