Cleaning Up Export Files To Avoid "File Already Exists" Prompt via Java Agent

I recently designed an export function for transfers from Notes to Word. But the file I pointed to in the export is obviously generated to the same place every time I export ... which brings up this annoying "File Already Exists" prompt, with the option to replace or cancel. This was designed for the sales reps, and you know how impatient sales guys are. This Java agent is an override of sorts. Must be allowed to run unrestricted Java agents. Runs manually from agent list, run once (@command may be used)

import lotus.domino.*;

public class JavaAgent extends AgentBase {

public void NotesMain() {

try {
File exportFile = new File("</path/filename of exported doc>");
Session session = getSession();
AgentContext agentContext = session.getAgentContext();

} catch(Exception e) {
