How to apply Warning off message to my code

I have a code below.  It works, but when I try to 1) check if csv file has appropriate column title and 2) if not, update the titles, and 3) save it into xls file, the warning message pops up, saying "A file named S:\db\invoice.xls exists.  Do you want to replace it?  I click "Yes" anyway, so how can I turn off the warning?  Thank you very much in advance.  -- hb

My code is below:

Private Sub ImportCSV_Click()

    Dim xl As Object, strFilePath As String
    strFilePath = "S:\Db\invoice.csv"
    Set xl = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    ' make the excel application visible
    xl.Visible = True
    ' open the workbook
   
    xl.Workbooks.Open strFilePath
     If xl.Range("A1").Value = "InvoiceNo" Then
         'do nothing
         Else
    xl.Range("1:1").insert
    xl.ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Value = "InvoiceNo"
    xl.ActiveSheet.Range("B1").Value = "Amount"
    xl.ActiveSheet.Range("C1").Value = "DueDate"

    ' save and close the file
    If Val(xl.Version) < 12 Then
        xl.Workbooks(1).SaveAs "S:\Db\invoice.xls"
    Else
        ' to use XLSX format:
        'xl.Workbooks(1).SaveAs "S:\Db\invoice.xlsx", 51
        ' or to use XLSM format:
        'xl.Workbooks(1).SaveAs "S:\Db\invoice.xlsm", 52
        ' or to use XLSB format:
        'xl.Workbooks(1).SaveAs "S:\Db\invoice.xlsb", 50
        ' or to use good old XLS format:
        xl.Workbooks(1).SaveAs "S:\Db\invoice.xls", 56
    End If
   
    xl.Workbooks(1).Close SaveChanges:=True
    ' close Excel
   
    End If
    xl.Quit
    'clean up
    Set xl = Nothing    
             
    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "Invoice", "S:\Db\invoice.xls", True
     
    MsgBox "Completed"

End Sub

No worries.

You want to put it at the beginning and then again at the end to turn it back on.
Private Sub ImportCSV_Click()

    Dim xl As Object, strFilePath As String
    
    strFilePath = "S:\Db\invoice.csv"
    Set xl = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    
    'Turn off warnings
    xl.DisplayAlerts = False
    
    ' make the excel application visible
    xl.Visible = True
    ' open the workbook
   
    xl.Workbooks.Open strFilePath
     If xl.Range("A1").Value = "InvoiceNo" Then
         'do nothing
         Else
    xl.Range("1:1").insert
    xl.ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Value = "InvoiceNo"
    xl.ActiveSheet.Range("B1").Value = "Amount"
    xl.ActiveSheet.Range("C1").Value = "DueDate"

    ' save and close the file
    If Val(xl.Version) < 12 Then
        xl.Workbooks(1).SaveAs "S:\Db\invoice.xls"
    Else
        ' to use XLSX format:
        'xl.Workbooks(1).SaveAs "S:\Db\invoice.xlsx", 51
        ' or to use XLSM format:
        'xl.Workbooks(1).SaveAs "S:\Db\invoice.xlsm", 52
        ' or to use XLSB format:
        'xl.Workbooks(1).SaveAs "S:\Db\invoice.xlsb", 50
        ' or to use good old XLS format:
        xl.Workbooks(1).SaveAs "S:\Db\invoice.xls", 56
    End If
   
    xl.Workbooks(1).Close SaveChanges:=True
    ' close Excel
   
    End If
    
    xl.Quit
    
    'Turn on warnings
    xl.DisplayAlerts = False
    'clean up
    Set xl = Nothing    
             
    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "Invoice", "S:\Db\invoice.xls", True
     
    MsgBox "Completed"

End Sub

Re-posting as expert comment:

To turn off warnings in Excel, do this:
Application.DisplayAlerts = False

Turn it back on like this:
Application.DisplayAlerts = True

In Acces it would be this to turn them off
DoCmd.SetWarnings False

And this to turn them on:
DoCmd.SetWarnings True

TracyVBA DeveloperCommented:
And for your specific example, it would be this:

xl.DisplayAlerts = False

Since you define the application as xl in your code.

Thank you, broomee9 -
I am sorry to ask, but based on my code, where should I put the "x1.DisplaiyAlerts = False" and "x1.DisplaiyAlerts = True".  Sorry for being novice.  Thank you.
