Like this perhaps:
Sub x()

Dim ws As Worksheet

For Each ws In Worksheets
    Select Case ws.Name
        Case "WEEK1", "WEEK2", "WEEK3", "WEEK4", "WEEK5", "MONTH", _
             strCurrentContractors, strCreateReport, strExceptions, strExchangeRate, _
             strSummary, strTemplate
            ' do nothing
        Case Else
            Application.DisplayAlerts = False
            ws.Delete
            Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    End Select
Next ws

End Sub

Open in new window

Line 12 should do that. Are you saying you get the message every time?
