How can I change my code so that it runs correctly in Excel 32Bit & 64Bit?

The following code fails when running in Excel 2010 64Bit
Can you modify the code so that it will run in both 32Bit & 64Bit environments?
Thanks

Public Declare Function OpenClipboard Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
Public Declare Function EmptyClipboard Lib "user32" () As Long
Public Declare Function CloseClipboard Lib "user32" () As Long

Sorry, had to go to a meeting.  Also, I think I see my mistake in the code.

Try:

'Test for 64 bit version
#If Win64 Then
    Public Declare PtrSafe Function OpenClipboard Lib "user64" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
    Public Declare PtrSafe Function EmptyClipboard Lib "user64" () As Long
    Public Declare PtrSafe Function CloseClipboard Lib "user64" () As Long
#Else
    Public Declare Function OpenClipboard Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
    Public Declare Function EmptyClipboard Lib "user32" () As Long  
    Public Declare Function CloseClipboard Lib "user32" () As Long
#End If

Normally 32 bit would run on 64 bit but not the other way around however you can try something like this:

'Test for 64 bit version
#If Win64 Then
    Public Declare Function OpenClipboard Lib "user64" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
    Public Declare Function EmptyClipboard Lib "user64" () As Long
    Public Declare Function CloseClipboard Lib "user64" () As Long
#Else
    Public Declare Function OpenClipboard Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
    Public Declare Function EmptyClipboard Lib "user32" () As Long  
    Public Declare Function CloseClipboard Lib "user32" () As Long
#End If

According to Microsoft, you can ignore the error during the edit.  It isn't accurate.  It should still run okay.

Thanks for your answer
I found that I had to amend to "user32" in each instance so that it would work.
PtrSafe in the declaration is the key.
Thanks for your help

Glad to assist.  I wasn't thinking real straight or would have caught my error on "user32" myself.  Glad you figured that part out.  :)
