Help with arguments for Excel.Workbook.SaveAs function

Hello gurus,

I am trying to add a line to a VB function in Access. The function actually builds an excel spreadsheet. I want to overwrite an existing excel file with the newly built one everytime the script is run. I just can't get excel to stop prompting me about overwriting an exsiting file. Is there an argument to the SaveAs method that can turn off prompting?

My current code is:

    directory = "H:\Daily Numbers\" & Year(Now()) & "\" & MonthName(Month(Now())) & " " & Year(Now())
    ChDir (directory)
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs FileName:= _
        directory & "\Monthly Reporting " & MonthName(Month(Now())) & " " & Year(Now()) & "_DB.xls", _
        FileFormat:=xlNormal, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", _
        ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, CreateBackup:=False


Thanks in advance.

Try this

if dir(directory & "\Monthly Reporting " & MonthName(Month(Now())) & " " & Year(Now()) & "_DB.xls") <> "" then kill directory & "\Monthly Reporting " & MonthName(Month(Now())) & " " & Year(Now()) & "_DB.xls"

    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs FileName:= _
        directory & "\Monthly Reporting " & MonthName(Month(Now())) & " " & Year(Now()) & "_DB.xls", _
        FileFormat:=xlNormal, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", _
        ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, CreateBackup:=False

I'll have to test it later. I don't know why I didn't think of removing the file first.
Thanks
