Programmatically, using VB .NET, I can disable File > New in Excel.  However I am having trouble disabling "New" in the toolbar. How can I do that? Also how can I disable Ctrl + N? I tried Application.OnKey("^N", "") but it doesn't work.

I only want to disable for the workbook that I am on. Not for the whole application.

I can disable it however it disables on the whole application. I only want to disable it for the current workbook. Also, I need to disable "New" from the toolbar (toolbar with all the shortcurts).
