Hello everybody,

what I'm trying to do:
In an Access97 Form I have an embedded Excel object. I'm trying to delete all but one sheets with VBA without the alert "Do you really want to delete...".

I tried objExcel.Application.displayalerts=false
and
DoCmd.SetWarnings False

but both won't stop the alert.

Can anybody help me?

Thanks
Chris

The below code works in Excel 2000:

Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Sheets("Sheet1").Delete
Application.DisplayAlerts = True

Hi Chrising,

4 ways to do this:
1- If you want to stop ALL of these messeges in your mdb, then
Menu Bar > Tools > Options > Edit/Find and remove all the 3 ticks.

2- If you want to stop the error messeges in a particular code.
docmd.SetWarnings (false)
'code
docmd.SetWarnings (true)

3&4-
other way is to change docmd.runSQL "insert into ....." or docmd.openquery "qAppMyAppendQueryName"

Currentdb.execute "insert into...."
or
currentdb.execute "qAppMyAppendQueryName"

Hope this helps

Hi All,
these are both not the solutions I needed, but since I found a workaround (I delete all data oin the specific sheets), I'll split the points.

I needed to turn of Alarm of an embedded Excel Object in an Access form, so the docmd... wouldn't have any effect and the displayalerts property isn't available in an Excel object on an Access form.

Greetings Chris
