Do you not want them to use it, ever, in your app? Or just at certain times?

On each form for which you want the Escape key not to work, set the KeyPreview property of the form to Yes and then write code for the KeyDown event of the form that ignores the key, i.e.:

If KeyCode = vbEsc Then Exit Sub

(The syntax might be a little different, but that's the gist.)

Is that what you're looking for?
