Using the ALM plugin for Excel returns multiple "Use Existing Formatting" messages


When using the ALM plugin for Excel, multiple messages regarding "Use Existing Formatting" / "Match Element Data Type" are displayed. I can click either option each time this message is displayed to successfully import the ALM data.

My question is simply "How can I stop these messages?"

If I could execute the plugin from within VBA then I could use "Application.ScreenUpdating = False" to hide the messages (as it doesn't matter to me which option is selected) but I don't think it's possible to execute the plugin from within VBA?

Note: Sadly I can't use OTA due to security restrictions in place here.

Thanks for any help or advice anyone can offer.


FIXED: I discovered if I set worksheet's cells to type "General" before importing the data, then it won't display the messages, yay!
