Application.DisplayAlerts = False

    Application.DisplayAlerts = False


    In a Macro I have:
    ......
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    ....
    Set wb = Workbooks.Open(sPath & sName)
    Do While sName <> ""

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX << Problem here

    Loop
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True


    As the Second Workbook is Opened I get
    The Standard Message Warning/Alert
    Dealing with Updating Links;
    Update; Don't Update;

    I thought my Original DisplayAlerts = False
    Took care of this?

    Can someone assist?

    Jim

    Hi Jim,

    Try:

    Tools | Options | Edit | Uncheck "Ask to update automatic links"

    Thanks Norman;
    Is this one of those situations where this affects All Workbooks
    Until you return to Tools Options, Edit and Check it back on? Also
    Unchecking this does it mean that all links are updated?
    Tks,
    Jim

    As you correctly surmise, this is an application setting; if you are
    distributing the workbook, note that your users would similarly need to
    adjust the setting.

    > Unchecking this does it mean that all links are updated?


    Yes.

    Try Application.AskToUpdateLinks = False

    Hi Jim,

    As Don indicates in an adjacent post, you can change the application setting
    programmatically.

    If you wish ajust the setting for cetain files only, you can use the
    UpdateLinks argument to the Worbook's open method. This argument takes four
    values:

    0 Doesn't update any references
    1 Updates external references but not remote references
    2 Updates remote references but not external references
    3 Updates both remote and external references

    See VBA help on the Open method for more information.

    The end result will be the same, but to me it would be better to say not
    that it is changing the setting for that workbook but it is specifing the
    action to take for that single opening of the workbook.

    Set wb = Workbooks.Open(sPath & sName, Updatelinks:=0)

    I agree; there is an unfortunate, and unintended ambiguity, in my phrase!
    Certainly, my intention was to indicate a meaning synonymous with your
    articulation.

    Thank you for highlighting a possible source of misunderstanding.

    Another problem

    I have several report templates (spreadsheets) in one workbook. A user can select one (or more) reports in vb screen (application is written in vb 6), data from a database are processed and send to the Excel template - then unnecessary worksheets are deleted. It works perfectly at the first run. If I repeat the procedure - Application.DisplayAlerts=False does not work, in other words excessive worksheets are not being deleted. Magic!
    This is the procedure:
    Public Sub RemoveExtraSheets(ByRef s As String)

    Dim eItem As Excel.Worksheet

    For Each eItem In xlAppl.ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets

    Application.DisplayAlerts = False

    If InStr(eItem.Name, s) = 0 Then
    eItem.Delete
    End If
    Next
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True

    End Sub

    Re: Application.DisplayAlerts = False

    I would imagine the
    InStr(eItem.Name, s)=0
    is evaluating to False

    If you run it on the same workbook, the first time all the WS are deleted,
    so there are no more that qualify the second time.
