I have developed a script which goes into a shared folder and opens up N workbooks and copies sheet 1 from each of N to a master workbook.  As it copies into the Master workbook it creates a sheet that has all of the worksheets data on it with an added column of Producer which is grapped from the file name.  The problem that I am having is with formatting the Master Sheet's page breaks I can add a page break where I want it however I can not remove the Automatic PageBreak that is inserted by execl.  Not the sub format master which contains the insertion of the page break.  I have tried to preformatt the worksheet with the initalizemaster sub to set pagebreaks to none.   Any help would be apperciated.  The complete script is below.
