How to Stop the “Do you want to save…” prompt RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I’ve a MS Office Pro Plus 2010 installed on Win 7 Pro 64 bit OS. Here is what happens:

    I open a word document.

    I do not make any changes to the document.

    I save the document as PDF.

    When I try to close the original word document, I get prompted to Do you want to save the document?

    Is there a way to stop this annoying prompt?

    Thanks a bunch,

    Joe Green

  • Hi,

    Open a Word file, then press Alt+F11, in “ThisDocument”, paste the following code:

    Private Sub Document_Close()

    Application.DisplayAlerts = False

       On Error Resume Next


    End Sub

    Then save the file as PDF, close the document, the prompt will not show.

    Note: I only consider the situation about there is no changes in the file. If there is any change in the file, the prompt will show again. And after close the file, open it again, it will show another prompt, just click “Enable Macros” button.
