MS Excel SaveAs Without Prompt, VBA MS Access

Hello,

I have the following code at the end of a function that edits an Excel spreadsheet within an Access code, VBA:

apExcel.DisplayAlerts = False
    wkBook.SaveAs FileName:=sFileName
apExcel.DisplayAlerts = True

Supposedly, this should save the file without any prompts.  Strangely, it seems to save the file, the prompt again if I want to save the prompt.  I recently upgraded from Access and Excel 2000 to 2010, and this code worked fine with those.  However, everything I read says this should work.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Does the Excel file have a Workbook_BeforeSave macro? If so, that will be triggered by your SaveAs unless you turn events off:
apExcel.EnableEvents = False
apExcel.DisplayAlerts = False
    wkBook.SaveAs FileName:=sFileName
apExcel.DisplayAlerts = True
apExcel.EnableEvents = True

Another possibility is that you try to close the workbook and encounter the Save prompt from that action. You can avoid it with the SaveChanges parameter:
wkBook.Close SaveChanges:=False

You hit the nail on the head.  This fixed the issue.

Thanks.
