    I have a vbs that convert old xls to a new xls, then saves it.
    When the save line executes, it asks:
    A file named --- already exists in this location. Do you want to replace it? How can I automated this prompt to replace exiting file? see code below..
    <<ednetmanFormatExcel "c:\test\Hourly Priority Report rev.xls"
    Sub ednetmanFormatExcel(ByVal vFilePath)
    Dim xlApp
    Set xlApp = CreateObject("excel.application")
    With xlApp.Workbooks.Open(vFilePath) 'open file
    With .ActiveSheet
    End With
    .SaveAs Left(vFilePath, Len(vFilePath) - 5) & ".xls", -4143 '-4143=xlWorkbookNormal
    .Close SaveChange=True
    End With
    Set xlApp = Nothing
    End Sub>>
