    Run-Time Check Failure #2 help

    for some reason my variable 'character' is causing this message to pop up.

    - Run-Time Check Failure #2 - Stack around the variable ' character ' was corrupted.

    here is the code.


    #include "stdio.h"
    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include "stdlib.h"
    #define LINE "_____________________"
    #define TITLE "KEYBOARD"
    #define AUTHOR "GROUP NINE"


    int main()


    {
    char character= ' ';


    printf("\n \t %s \n \t %s \n", LINE, TITLE); /* PROGRAMME HEADER */
    printf("\t by %s \n \t %s \n\n", AUTHOR, LINE); /* PROGRAMME HEADER */

    printf("Welcome toProgramme Beta\n\n");
    printf("Enter any one keyboard character: ");
    scanf_s( "%C", &character);


    Please can someone help me correct this.

    Thank You.

    Code:
    scanf_s( "%C", &character);
    Format specifiers are case sensitive, that should be %c, not %C.
