  • Hi Allipur,

    You could use the following code to suppress the alert.

    Word.Application word = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application;

    word.DisplayAlerts = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdAlertLevel.wdAlertsNone;

    However you could not completely dismiss alert messages in Word. The best thing to do is try to anticipate the errors that may occur and avoid generating them.

    Please see the following link:

    Hopefully it helps you.

    Best Regards,
