How to detect, if you are running 64-bit Office

Filed under: Access 2010, Access 2013 — access @ 10:54 am

New data type LongPtr is Long integer on 32-bit systems and LongLong integer on 64-bit systems, by checking it VarType you can find out on what environments you run your VBA code:

Function Is64BitOffice() As Boolean
    Dim lp As LongPtr
    Is64BitOffice = Not (VarType(lp) = vbLong)
End Function

This trick I learned from fellow MVP Brent Spaulding
