OLE automation: Excel Template question

P: n/a
As a novice VBA programmer, I have a problem with a routine written as
a click procedure from a form to open an Excel template, insert some
information, print, and (ideally) return control back to the form. The
problem is only in that I don't want to answer the question from Excel
"Do you want to save (y/n):". I just want to print the sheet. Can I
do this in such a way that excel will not prompt me to save? I don't
see any alternative but to unload the form, and that is what causes the
prompt to save. I'm sure there is a better way to do this, but as I
said, I'm new to this stuff. Any help is appreciated. Code appears


Option Compare Database
Dim xlObject As Object ' Declare variable to hold the reference to the
Excel Object.

Private Sub AutomateExcel_Click()
'On Error GoTo Err_AutomateExcel_Click

'Create an object for Excel
Set xlObject = CreateObject("excel.application")

'Make the Excel application visible
xlObject.Visible = True
Set xlBook =
xlObject.Workbooks.Add("\\Termsrvr\tshome\******** \********\Dev\TS.xlt")
'Activate the worksheet, select the range, activate a cell in the range

'Set focus to LNF on Access form
'Place the LNF in the active cell.
xlObject.ActiveCell.Value = UCase(LNF.Text)


'Set focus to TSEmpLocation on Access form
'Place TSEmpLocation in the active cell.
xlObject.ActiveCell.Value = TSEmpLocation.Text


'Set focus to TSEmpNum on Access form
'Place TSEmpNum in the active cell.
xlObject.ActiveCell.Value = TSEmpNum.Text

On Error Resume Next
xlObject.UserControl = True

Set xlBook = Nothing
Set xlObject = Nothing
Exit Sub
MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_AutomateExcel_Click

End Sub

Private Sub Detail_Click()

End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()

End Sub

All you need to do is insert this line when you are all done with the

xlBook.Close False

The "false" value is for the SaveChanges parameter...
