Hi,

I am automating a data collection process (i.e. gather data from various spreadsheets and deposit them in a central location).

When my code closes a file, a prompt appears saying (paraphrasing): You have a large amount of data on a clipboard. Do you want to keep it there for future use.

How do I answer "no" to this question in my code such that the code automatically closes the file and moves onto the next file?

Thanks for your support,
Robert

How to create a cell-sized chart?
Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.

Can't you just add the following into your code before you close the source file?

Code:
Application.CutCopyMode = False

This worked perfectly for me, stopped the pesky monster from asking silly questions on exit
