Default problem with access levels in application

Hi All

I am new to VB although I have experience in other programming languages. the project I am working on a designing an application which has MS SQL database at back-end has abt 15 forms for input and output of data. I need to provide the 3 different access levels for three different kind of users i.e.

Level1 for administrator who can access all the forms,
Level2 is for engineer who inputs data into system and have access to abt 10 forms
Level3 is operator who has access to only 5 foams

How can I associate the type of user to the form
Do I need to store the list of user and access levels into database?

Any help will be appreciated

I believe that you are going to have to store a list of users and their permissions in the database.
After all, that is what Windows does to handle security for users of workstations. Seems if there was an easier way, Mickey-Soft would use it.
