VBA Code to close the ActiveDocument without saving it.

In a Word Macro I have a line that closes the ActiveDocument like this
ActiveDocument.Close
However, when the above line of code runs, I get a message box giving me three options: Save, Don't Save, Cancel.
I am wondering if there is a way closing ActiveDocument without letting this Message Box popup or to close this MessageBox through the code so that the user does not have to chose from the three options. I would like to always Close with Don't Save Option in Macro.
So basically I am looking at a way of closing the ActiveDocument without having to manually say Don't Save.

I would certainly study articles written by you. What I find very interesting in your profile is that your original degree was in Organic Chemistry. This gives me hope that I can also learn programming one day.
You would have already guessed from my silly questions on VBA I am not a professional programmer. I am a hobbyist with a degree in a completely diferent field, though I am much better in .NET and C#.
I use VBA macros only to make some parts of my personal routine work easier.
