Merge wbs to Master wb - Control the startup message about updating linked workbooks and copy only values not formulas

I have to copy data wbs to a master wb. The simple macro below works fine.

Q1: First, in the Data wbs there are  links to another wbs. I don't know how to control the startup message about updating linked workbooks in Excel when I run the macro. I have changed the Excel Options to avoid the message but  no better result. How can I change the macro that it copies from closed data wbs?

Q2:  Second, I would like copy only the values, no formulars to the master wb.
Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).PasteSpecial


Sub simpleXlsMerger()
Dim bookList As Workbook
Dim mergeObj As Object, dirObj As Object, filesObj As Object, everyObj As Object
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set mergeObj = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
 
'change folder path of excel files here
Set dirObj = mergeObj.Getfolder("C:\Users\Adam\Desktop\Verbundaktion\")
Set filesObj = dirObj.Files
For Each everyObj In filesObj
Set bookList = Workbooks.Open(everyObj)
 
Range("A3:IV" & Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row).Copy
ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(1).Activate
 
Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).PasteSpecial
Application.CutCopyMode = False
bookList.Close
Next
End Sub

Thank you.

Regards,

Adam

'change folder path of excel files here
Set dirObj = mergeObj.Getfolder("C:\Users\Adam\Desktop\Verbundaktion\")
Set filesObj = dirObj.Files
For Each everyObj In filesObj
Application.AskToUpdateLinks = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Set bookList = Workbooks.Open(everyObj)

Sorry, one issue more.

Q: Can the macro overwrite the existing values please. When I update the Master file I get Duplicates.
