I created the macro below to update an Excel 3 file to an Excel 97 file,
but I would like for it to automatically overwrite the existing file
without prompting the user.
I've searched several sources and can't seem to find anything. Thanks for
your help.

Sub UpdateExcelVersion()
'
' UpdateExcelVersion Macro

'
Workbooks.Open FileName:="C:Impromptu ReportsCropInsEEs.xls"
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs FileName:="C:Impromptu ReportsCropInsEEs.xls", _
FileFormat:=xlExcel9795, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", _
ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, CreateBackup:=False
ActiveWorkbook.Close
End Sub

Hi NitherWise

Welcome to the board. :)

To suppress the warning message use Application.DisplayAlerts=False before the line containing the save instruction.

(Switch back to true again afterwards to make sure you continue to receive other messages).
