Hi,
I have posted a generic query regarding ‘PtrSafekeyword’ few days ago.
However not able to find my post hence posting as new thread.
I have below line of code in my macro and am required to update it with ‘PtrSafe keyword’

Code:
[FONT=Calibri]Private Declare Function GetPrivateProfileStringLib "kernel32" Alias "GetPrivateProfileStringA" (ByVallpApplicationName As String, ByVal lpKeyName As String, ByVal lpDefault AsString, ByVal lpReturnedString As String, ByVal nSize As Long, ByVal lpFileNameAs String) As Long[/FONT]

I am new to MS Access and have no idea about how this.
Can anyone please help how to do it.

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

Code:
Private Declare [COLOR=#0000ff]PtrSafe[/COLOR] Function GetPrivateProfileStringLib "kernel32" Alias "GetPrivateProfileStringA" (ByVallpApplicationName As String, ByVal lpKeyName As String, ByVal lpDefault AsString, ByVal lpReturnedString As String, ByVal nSize As Long, ByVal lpFileNameAs String) As Long
