I am trying to automate the import of an external file but everytime the import is processed a popup (see picture) shows and it stops the automation tool.

Can I suppress this popup?

What kind of automation tool are you running? Is this like a bot process that is running like you behind the scenes? Or are you scripting this?

I'm using the Kantu automation tool
I'm not well versed in that particular tool, but am familiar with another Browser automation tool, UiPath. To my knowledge that pop up window cannot be disabled. Since you're using Kantu, you would need to add a step at this point to click that button in order to process, basically that pop up will always be there, so your automation needs to click it if possible. 

I'll let anyone else chime in if they are better versed with this particular tool.

thanks. I'm struggling to find a way to detect and click on it hence the desire to disable it. Will keep looking!

thanks again.

One idea would be to use TamperMonkey and make a little script that defeats that popup specifically. You could likely disable ALL popups too but you should just try to disable them on specific pages.
