From your code stub, it looks like you are testing for equality on the same thing at the start ( dat[0] = dat[0] ), that would always be true ( e.g. "1" = "1" and "aaa" = "aaa" etc). If dat[0] contains the room name, maybe you need the following test:

if (dat[0] = {name of support room} ) and (Dm.UserTyp = '2') then

   if (dat[0] = 'English Help') // Check room names
      and
      (Dm.UserTyp='2') // Check account level
   then

but I want to be able to enter that room and thing other then English Help would get the error msg!

I'm not sure I understand you. Do you want anyone with UserTyp 2 to ONLY be able to enter the supportroom?

if (dat[0] <> 'Support Room')  and  (Dm.UserTyp='2')
   then begin
     Showmessage('Sorry!, Help Accounts are unable to access public areas.');
     Exit;
   end
   else begin
     //
   end;

I think that's exactly what I said :)

if (dat[0] <> 'Support Room')   //if room is any other than support room
   and                                     //and at the same time
   (Dm.UserTyp='2')                //user type is 2
   then begin                           //then reject  
     Showmessage('Sorry!, Help Accounts are unable to access public areas.');
     Exit;
   end
   else begin
     //
   end;

OK, looks like you may want to reverse the logic for the tests. The limiting factor (UserTyp = '2') should be checked first, not what board you are in:

if (Dm.UserTyp = '2') then  // restricted accounts
begin
  if (dat[0] <> 'English Help') then
  begin
    ShowMessage('Sorry...');
    Exit; // leaves routine
  end;

  // continue with "support" options from here...
end
else begin  // non-restricted accounts
...
end;

Ok that worked fine but now the problem is all other accounts can not access rooms lol here full code

[code]

if (com='RJoinRoom')then
begin
  if ChatFormTable.Locate('Name',dat[0],[])=false then
  begin
  if (Dm.UserTyp = '2') then  // restricted accounts
  begin
  if (dat[0] <> 'English Help') then
  begin
    Showmessage('Sorry!, Help Accounts are unable to access public areas.');
    Exit; // leaves routine
  // continue with "support" options from here...
end
else begin  // non-restricted accounts
    if NewRForm<>nil  then NewRForm.Close;
    if EnterForm<>nil then EnterForm.Close;
//    if ListForm<>nil  then ListForm.Close;
    if ChatFormTable.Locate('Name',dat[0],[])=false then
     begin
      Application.CreateForm(TChatForm, CForm0);
      CForm0.Name:='chat'+inttostr(CForm0.handle);
      if ChatFormTable.RecordCount=0 then CForm0.media:=true else CForm0.media:=false;
      ChatFormTable.Append;
      ChatFormTable.FieldByName('Name').AsString:=dat[0];
      ChatFormTable.FieldByName('FormName').AsString:=CForm0.Name;
      ChatFormTable.Post;
      CForm0.RoomName:=dat[0];
      CForm0.GroupName:=dat[2];
      CForm0.Caption:=dat[0];
      MyHand:=False;
      Speak:=false;
//      if pos('SPEEX',uppercase(dat[6]))>0 then dat[6]:=copy(dat[6],pos('SPEEX',uppercase(dat[6]))+5,length(dat[6]));
      CForm0.Codec:=dat[6];
      CForm0.PrepareCodec(dat[6]);
      CForm0.Show;
      if (Dm.UserTyp='2')or(Dm.UserTyp='3')then
        CForm0.ChatPopup.Items[4].Visible:=true
      else
       CForm0.ChatPopup.Items[4].Visible:=false;
      if dat[1]='1' then
       begin
        CForm0.Owner:=true;
        CForm0.ChatPopup.Items[4].Visible:=true;
       end
      else
       CForm0.Owner:=false;
      CForm0.SKForm.Caption:=dat[0];
      s:='šGetChatUsersœ'+dat[0]+'œ';
      Socket.SendText(CodeStr(s));
     end
    else
     begin
      CForm0:=Application.FindComponent(ChatFormTableFormName.AsString) as TChatForm;
      if CForm0<>nil then
       begin
        if CForm0.UserTable.Locate('Name',DM.UserName,[])then
         begin
          CForm0.UserTable.Append;
          CForm0.UserTable.FieldByName('Name').AsString:=DM.UserName;
          CForm0.UserTable.FieldByName('Owner').AsString:=dat[1];
          CForm0.UserTable.Post;
          if dat[1]='1' then
           CForm0.VTSInsert(dat[0],dat[1],dat[3],dat[4],'0','0',dat[7])
          else
           CForm0.VTSAppend(dat[0],dat[1],dat[3],dat[4],'0','0',dat[7]);
         end;
         end;
