btrieve api and visual basic

do i need to do anything special to integer, single, double data types like i do with long integer data types?  i'm trying to access our btrieve files using the api from within visual basic 6.0 and i know that for the long integer types you have to use the CopyMemory function to get the data to come in correctly.  But what about integer, single, and doubles?  any help would be great!

RE: btrieve api and visual basic

You should use CopyMemory any time the structure alignment could be pushed out because of a numeric type.  This includes Single, Double, Integers, Longs, etc.  As a general rule, I always use CopyMemory for non-string fields.
