Here I introduce two VBA codes for you to disable the save prompt. One will close the Excel without saving when you close the workbook directly, while the other will close the Excel with saving the last change you make when you close workbook.
1. Press Alt + F11 to open a Microsoft Visual Basic for Application window.
2. Click Insert > Module to open a Module window, then copy the following VBA to the window.
VBA: Close without saving directly.
Sub Auto_Close() ThisWorkbook.Saved = True End Sub
3. Click Run button or F5 key on the keyboard to run this code. Then when you closing an Excel workbook, it will close directly and not saving the last change.
If you want to close the Excel with saving the changes, you can use this VBA code.
VBA: Close with saving.
Sub Auto_Close() If ThisWorkbook.Saved = False Then ThisWorkbook.Save End If End Sub
Note: The second VBA doesn't work with new workbooks that you have never saved before.
