    when running macros with multiple queries in Access 2007 I currently have to
    answer Yes/No to warning messages ("are you sure you want to run this ?"). In
    Access 2000 this coul dbe turned off with an extra line inside the Macro but
    that doesn't work in 2007. I have been able turn it off for the entire
    appliction on a single PC but when deploying a database to another user who
    only has Access Runtime for example this option isn't available. Is there a
    way of stopping these messages for an entire database or by macro within that
    database like there was in 2003?

    Open the macro in design view, insert a new row at top and anothe at bottom.
    Add action 'SetWarnings' - No in the new row at top and 'SetWarnings' - Yes
    in the new row at bottom.

    Thank you for your prompt response Karl !
    Unfortunately, in 2007 there is no option "SetWarnings" in the list in
    design view.
    That was the way I used to do it in 2003. Is there a way this option can be
    added by users in design view so that it can be used? It's not allowing
    anything apart from the listed options with the current settings.

  4. Biggles,

    Click the Show All Actions button on the Show/Hide group on the Macro
    Design Tools tab.

    By the way, you don't need to put a SetWarnings/Yes action in the
    macro... the warnings automatically reverts at the end of the macro
