Declare Sub CopyMemoryLpToLp Lib "kernel32" Alias "RtlMoveMemory" (ByVal pDest As Long, ByVal pSrc As Long, ByVal ByteLen As Long)

Sub Main()
    Dim stuff As Single
    Dim ba(0 To 3) As Byte

    stuff = 1234.5678
    CopyMemoryLpToLp VarPtr(ba(0)), VarPtr(stuff), 4&
    Debug.Print ba(0)
    Debug.Print ba(1)
    Debug.Print ba(2)
    Debug.Print ba(3)
End Sub
