No, there's no built in function available.
Here's a small function that you can use as starting point to escape certain characters:
Function EscapeChars(s As String) As String
Dim i, s2
s2 = ""
For i = 1 To Length(s)
If Pos(LowerCase(s[i]), "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789%.") > 0 Then
s2 = s2 + s[i]
s2 = s2 + "%" + IntToHex(Ord(s[i]), 2)
s = EscapeChars("http://www.domain.com/image.jpg")
s = http%3A%2F%2Fwww.domain.com%2Fimage.jpg
