Looking for 64bit version of Declare Function GetUserName Lib

I am using getusername function to use Windows login for security.  However, when I tried to use the mdb on a 64 bit setup I get the following error msg.

Compile Error

The code in this project must be updated to 64bit systems.  Please review and updatet declare statetments and then mark them with the PtrSafe atribute.

What do I need to do this?

Here's the 64-bit definition:

Declare PtrSafe Function GetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long

Open in new window

To make your db 32 and 64 bit compatible, include a check for the VBA7 compiler directive constant

#if VBA7 then
'* My 64-bit declarations
Declare PtrSafe Function GetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long
#else
'* My 32-bit declarations
Declare Function GetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long
#end if

Open in new window
