Default User Level Security

I have created a user level security database. Everything is working as it should. Here is the problem. I have certain forms that users if they are not cleared for are denied access to and other that if they are cleared for can view. These different forms ultimately are tied to the same table. That is where the problem is. Since the table is used to log info for both viewable and non-viewable forms i have to leave the ability for the underlying table to be read. If i try to prevent the user from read the table then he is denied the use of the forms that he is allowed to view. Therefore i have to leave the table as readable. Therefore i do not where to go. I have to keep the user from viewing a form but yet he could still potentially see the data in the form by simplying opening the underlying table. Any suggestions?

Get the user info, and if the user does not have rights, set the Allow Edits/Additions/Deletions to No.

Did that help?

Thanks for the reply, however you can allow edit/additions/deletions without read also activating by default. Then if read if activated by default the use can still see what is in the table? I am stumped.
