This code kicks back asking if I want to overwrite the existing file with the same name.  How do I tell it yes.  and do it every time?  Please advise and thanks. -R-

myDirECTorY = "C:\_SAP\ShortageRpt\DefaultExtractFiles\"        'Wherever you want
'myFileNameO = myDirECTorY & Format(Now(), "yyyymmdd_hhmm") & " ZSHORTV2DataCurrent" & ".xlsx"    'File name as desired.
myFileNameO = myDirECTorY & " ZSHORTV2DataCurrent" & ".txt"    'File name as desired.

Workbooks.Add
ActiveSheet.Paste

'Add text to column here

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=myFileNameO, FileFormat:= _
      xlOpenXMLWorkbook, CreateBackup:=False
ActiveWorkbook.Close
 
MsgBox (" Done file saved ")

Before your SaveAs, add this line of code:
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
After your SaveAs, add this line of code:
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
