Display Alerts - How Do you disable them in VBA?

I am running/coding update queries in MS Acess VBA 2002
and each update query asks the user to click "Yes or No" to verify they want to update the table.

I do not want this user interaction (since there are alot of queries)

How can I set the Display Alerts to FALSE (like in Excel) so that this box does not pop up asking the user if they want to update the table?

or is there a way for me to hard code a line to automatically click "Yes" for the end user when this verification box/display alert pops up?

I have searched for this answer and cannot find it. Thank in advance for ANY help. This project is due tomorrow Friday the 8th.

DoCmd.SetWarnings False 'will turn off the popup warnings
DoCmd.SetWarnings True 'will turn them back on

Makes sure you turn them off when necessary as it will disable /all/ error and warning messages!

Good answer, but you should understand that this is only for data type warning messages. This will not disable error messages as such.
