Screen updating message

Hi All I am using following code to extract wks from different wbs with same name. I am still getting screen alert of update/don't update. Can you suggest the correction in the code to avoid the alert? Thanks
Sub CombineSheets()
    Dim sPath As String
    Dim sFname As String
    Dim wBk As Workbook
    Dim wSht As Variant

    Application.EnableEvents = False
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    sPath = InputBox("Enter a full path to workbooks")
    ChDir sPath
    sFname = InputBox("Enter a filename pattern")
    sFname = Dir(sPath & "\" & sFname & ".xl*", vbNormal)
    wSht = InputBox("Enter a worksheet name to copy")
    Do Until sFname = ""
        Set wBk = Workbooks.Open(sFname)
        Sheets(wSht).Copy Before:=ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1)
        wBk.Close False
        sFname = Dir()
    Application.EnableEvents = True
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

... really - it don't matter?
a) by fixing Your code that it allows updating always
b) test to add three lines
After Sub -line On Error Resume Next
before Application.EnableEvents = False line Application.DisplayAlerts = False
before End Sub -line Application.DisplayAlerts = True
>>> and >>>
