excel vba 2010

I need to keep a modeless userform on top while i process some functions in vba after pressing a command button.

http://www.jkp-ads.com/Articles/keepuserformontop02.asp


This link tells you what to do in excel 2013  version 15 vba.

Can this be revamped to work in excel 2010   v14 ?

Thanks

Option Explicit

'Object variable to trigger application events
Private WithEvents XLApp As Excel.Application

#If VBA7 Then
    Dim mXLHwnd As LongPtr    'Excel's window handle
    Dim mhwndForm As LongPtr  'The userform's window handle
    private Declare PtrSafe Function FindWindowA Lib "user32" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As LongPtr
    #If Win64 Then
        private Declare PtrSafe Function SetWindowLongA Lib "user32" Alias "SetWindowLongPtrA" (ByVal hwnd As LongPtr, ByVal nIndex As Long, ByVal dwNewLong As LongPtr) As LongPtr
    #Else
        private Declare PtrSafe Function SetWindowLongA Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As LongPtr, ByVal nIndex As Long, ByVal dwNewLong As LongPtr) As LongPtr
    #End If
    private Declare PtrSafe Function SetForegroundWindow Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As LongPtr) As Long
#Else
    Dim mXLHwnd As Long    'Excel's window handle
    Dim mhwndForm As Long  'The userform's window handle
    Private Declare Function FindWindowA Lib "user32" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long
    Private Declare Function SetWindowLongA Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal nIndex As Long, ByVal dwNewLong As Long) As Long
    Private Declare Function SetForegroundWindow Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
#End If

Const GWL_HWNDPARENT As Long = -8

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
    If Val(Application.Version) >= 15 Then        'Only makes sense on Excel 2013 and up
        Set XLApp = Application
        mhwndForm = FindWindowA("ThunderDFrame", Caption)
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub XLApp_WindowActivate(ByVal Wb As Workbook, ByVal Wn As Window)
    If Val(Application.Version) >= 15 And mhwndForm <> 0 Then  'Basear o form na janela ativa do Excel.
        mXLHwnd = Application.hwnd    'Always get because in Excel 15 SDI each wb has its window with different handle.
        SetWindowLongA mhwndForm, GWL_HWNDPARENT, mXLHwnd
        SetForegroundWindow mhwndForm
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub XLApp_WindowResize(ByVal Wb As Workbook, ByVal Wn As Window)
    If Not Me.Visible Then Me.Show vbModeless
End Sub

Private Sub XLApp_WorkbookBeforeClose(ByVal Wb As Workbook, Cancel As Boolean)
    SetWindowLongA mhwndForm, GWL_HWNDPARENT, 0&
End Sub

Open in new window

The only change you would need is the APplication.Version check in there, Excel 2010 is version 14.

But why would you need to do this?
