Try this. Uses Do/Loop but could be For/Next:

Option Explicit
 
Dim bEscape             As Boolean
 
Private Sub Command1_Click()
   Dim i                As Long
   Do
      DoEvents
      If bEscape Then
         bEscape = False
         Debug.Print "Exiting loop"
         Exit Do
      End If
   Loop
End Sub
 
Private Sub Form_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
   If KeyAscii = 27 Then
      bEscape = True
   End If
End Sub
 
Private Sub Form_Load()
   Me.KeyPreview = True
End Sub
