Are you basicly trying to stop users from exiting a document without saving it first?

Put this in the global-delaration part of the form:
Declare Function GetAsyncKeyState Lib "user32" (Byval vKey As Long) As Integer

And in the form's queryclose event put this:
If (GetAsyncKeyState(27)) Then
   continue=False
End If

This will disable the 'Esc' key.  But it will not stop the user from clicking the 'X' in the task bar (if you are using R5) or going to menu item file-close.
