In running a Macro in Access, please offer how I may turn off all the pop-ups that appear during Macro execution.

I have gone to the "Security" tab, but cannot find any choice to turn these off.

Use Setwarnings = false at the beginning of the macro
Make sure you include Setwarnings = true at the end!!

I believe you mean the confirmation dialogs that you get when action queries are executed. With the database open, go to tools, options, and then client on the Edit/Find tab. uncheck all the boxes in the confirm group.

Add the   DoCmd.SetWarnings=False  command before you fireoff the macro.
