Excel: Declaring API functions in 64 bit Office Content Introduction If you develop VBA code for multiple versions of Office, you may face a challenge: ensuring your code works on both 32 bit and 64 bit platforms. This page is meant to be the first stop for anyone who needs the proper syntax for his API declaration statement in Office VBA. Many of the declarations were figured out by Charles Williams of when he created the 64 bit version of our Name Manager. All of these are Windows API calls.

Error Handling In VBA Introduction Error handling refers to the programming practice of anticipating and coding for error conditions that may arise when your program runs. Errors in general come in three flavors: compiler errors such as undeclared variables that prevent your code from compiling; user data entry error such as a user entering a negative value where only a positive number is acceptable; and run time errors, that occur when VBA cannot correctly execute a program statement. We will concern ourselves here only with run time errors. Typical run time errors include attempting to access a non-existent worksheet or workbook, or attempting to divide by zero. The example code in this article will use the division by zero error (Error 11) when we want to deliberately raise an error. Your application should make as many checks as possible during initialization to ensure that run time errors do not occur later. The On Error Statement The heart of error handling in VBA is the On Error statement.
