No prompt before delete

I have a couple of lines of code that delete the default sheets from the workbook that my application creates.

        Dim DeadSheet As Worksheet
        DeadSheet = xlBook.Sheets("Sheet1")
        DeadSheet.Delete()
        DeadSheet = xlBook.Sheets("Sheet2")
        DeadSheet.Delete()
        DeadSheet = xlBook.Sheets("Sheet3")
        DeadSheet.Delete()

When the users run the program, they are prompted before deleting each sheet.  Is there a way to skip this prompting to speed up the process?

Hello lgropper,

assuming you declared your xl app earlier, you can use something like
---------
xlApp.ScreenUpdating = false
xlApp.DisplayAlerts = false

        Dim DeadSheet As Worksheet
        DeadSheet = xlBook.Sheets("Sheet1")
        DeadSheet.Delete()
        DeadSheet = xlBook.Sheets("Sheet2")
        DeadSheet.Delete()
        DeadSheet = xlBook.Sheets("Sheet3")
        DeadSheet.Delete()

xlApp.DisplayAlerts = true
xlApp.ScreenUpdating = true
---------

hope this helps a bit
