Excel/Clipboard messages


Hi Tom
I have Excel 2007
I am using VBA and I copying and pasting the contents of cells from one one workbook to another workbook.
  Workbooks("LOG VIN1900 19C.xls").Activate
         Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
  Workbooks("DATE.XLS").Close SaveChanges:=True

I am getting a request if I want to save the contents of the clipboard prior to closing "Date.xls". I don't want this request every time I do this function and I am finished with the clipboard data.
What is the code I can write to do this.
I had a look in HELP but could not see anything that was useful. Can you help me?


Application.CutCopyMode = False


Workbooks("LOG VIN1900 19C.xls").Activate
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Workbooks("DATE.XLS").Close SaveChanges:=True
