in reply to execution of program without dialogue prompting up.

The somewhat... er... "abbreviated" anonymous answer above is likely on the right track.

Mimic what you'd have to do in the GUI, through Perl. Save your desired copy as a ".csv", and then go through the seemingly pointless exercise of saving a new ".xls" file, and then deleting it after closing. Unless the API gives you a "close and ignore changes" option, this is your best bet.
