Experts,

Ian creating spreadsheets in SAS which is still creating the spreadsheets as xls.  I have Excel 2010 on my machine now.  

I have a macro which is formatting the spreadsheets.  Each time it saves I get the "incompatible message" attached.  Is there someway to code in VB so the process keeps going without manual response or to eliminate the message?
