The following code will not run on Excel 2013 64 byte,  I would like to be able to run on 32 byte and 64 byte


Private Declare Function GetPrivateProfileStringA Lib _
                                                  "kernel32" (ByVal strSection As Any, _
                                                              ByVal strKey As String, ByVal strDefault As Any, _
                                                              ByVal strReturnedString As Any, _
                                                              ByVal lngSize As Any, ByVal strFileNameName As Any) As Long

Open in new window


Function GetPrivateProfileString32(ByVal strFileName As String, _
                                   ByVal strSection As String, ByVal strKey As String, _
                                   Optional strDefault) As String
    Dim strReturnString As String, lngSize As Long, lngValid As Long
    On Error Resume Next
    If IsMissing(strDefault) Then strDefault = ""
    strReturnString = Space(1024)
    lngSize = Len(strReturnString)
    lngValid = GetPrivateProfileStringA(strSection, strKey, _
                                        strDefault, strReturnString, lngSize, strFileName)

Try this:
#If Win64 Then
    Private Declare PtrSafe Function GetPrivateProfileStringA Lib _
                                                      "kernel32" (ByVal strSection As Any, _
                                                                  ByVal strKey As String, ByVal strDefault As Any, _
                                                                  ByVal strReturnedString As Any, _
                                                                  ByVal lngSize As Any, ByVal strFileNameName As Any) As Long
#Else
    Private Declare Function GetPrivateProfileStringA Lib _
                                                      "kernel32" (ByVal strSection As Any, _
                                                                  ByVal strKey As String, ByVal strDefault As Any, _
                                                                  ByVal strReturnedString As Any, _
                                                                  ByVal lngSize As Any, ByVal strFileNameName As Any) As Long
#End If

Function GetPrivateProfileString32(ByVal strFileName As String, _
                                   ByVal strSection As String, ByVal strKey As String, _
                                   Optional strDefault) As String
    Dim strReturnString As String, lngSize As Long, lngValid As Long
    On Error Resume Next
    If IsMissing(strDefault) Then strDefault = ""
    strReturnString = Space(1024)
    lngSize = Len(strReturnString)
    lngValid = GetPrivateProfileStringA(strSection, strKey, _
                                        strDefault, strReturnString, lngSize, strFileName)
    GetPrivateProfileString32 = Left(strReturnString, lngValid)

Thank you MacroShadow

When running on 32 byte I get error type mismatch for strDefault.

I don't know. That is a problem with your original code (I only added 64bit support). Please ask new question.

BTW, Montrof, it's "32 bit" and "64 bit", not "32 byte" and "64 byte".  Only a factor of 8 out, though.
