Hi
I am using this code from access vba that apply format column from 1 excel to another :

xlsheet2.range("E7:E50000").Copy
Set xlSheet = xlBook.Sheets(3)
        xlApp.Visible = True
        Set rsCurr = CurrentDb.QueryDefs("qtblSubtractedBiWeeklyReport").OpenRecordset
        xlSheet.range("A7").CopyFromRecordset rsCurr
        xlSheet.range("E7:E50000").PasteSpecial Paste:=-4163, Operation:=-4142, SkipBlanks:=True

i got pop-up massege that ask me to confirm OK :
"Data on the clipboard is not the same size and shape as the selected area. Do you want to paste the data anyway?"

How can i solve and cancel this massege?

Does it work if you change the paste destination to the top left cell?
      xlSheet.range("E7").PasteSpecial Paste:=-4163, Operation:=-4142, SkipBlanks:=True

Copy directly from the recordset to the desired destination.
        xlsheet2.range("E7:E50000").Copy
        Set xlSheet = xlBook.Sheets(3)
        xlApp.Visible = True
        Set rsCurr = CurrentDb.QueryDefs("qtblSubtractedBiWeeklyReport").OpenRecordset
        xlSheet.range("E7").CopyFromRecordset rsCurr
        ' xlSheet.range("E7:E50000").PasteSpecial Paste:=-4163, Operation:=-4142, SkipBlanks:=True
