New Issue in converting an old Access v 2.0 to newer version

I'm getting a Run-time error '453'  can't find DLL entry point GetClassName in User32

with the highlighted line being  cch$ = wu_GetClassName(hwnd, stBuff, cchMax)


'------------------------------------------------------------------------
' FUNCTION    : wu_StWindowClass
'
' PURPOSE     : A simple cover function to the Windows API call.
'------------------------------------------------------------------------
Function wu_StWindowClass(hwnd As Long) As String
    Const cchMax = 255
    Dim stBuff As String * cchMax
    cch$ = wu_GetClassName(hwnd, stBuff, cchMax)
    If (hwnd& = 0) Then
        wu_StWindowClass = ""
    Else
        wu_StWindowClass = (Left$(stBuff, cch$))
    End If
End Function

What platform are you running this on? User32.dll may not be available on the platform.

You probably have something like this in your code:

Declare Function GetClassName Lib "User" (ByVal hWnd As Integer, ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal nMaxCount As Integer) As Integer

which is a call to the 16-bit Windows API.
All of these must manually be recoded for Win32.

Thanks LSMConsulting:  and cactus_data:   the conversion is from Access version 2 to  Access 2003.
I have already updated  user to user32 , Integer to Long and the declare Function reads
Declare Function wu_GetClassName Lib "User32" Alias "GetClassName" (ByVal hwin&, ByVal stBuf$, ByVal cch$) As Long in its manually updated form.

That's why I'm puzzled at the message I have got on opening the main form

It's not that simple. Many function under Win32 have an appended A for ASCII or U for Unicode and Long replaces Integer:

Declare Function GetClassName Lib "user32" Alias "GetClassNameA" ( _
  ByVal hwnd As Long, _
  ByVal lpClassName As String, _
  ByVal nMaxCount As Long) _
  As Long

YES  I knew about the Asci and Unicode issue and I don't know why I hadn't twigged before about that
Thanks Heaps Gustav .
Looks like all is working but I'll do other testing
thanks Paul
