I have a main menu form.  On that main menu form are several command buttons that have a tag of "Secure".  If the user clicks on one of the buttons that is set to open a "Secure" form, I want a password form to open and have the user enter a password.  If the password equals DLookup("[dbPassword]", "tblSetup") then let them proceed.  

If the password they enter does not equal the DLookup, present a message form and Do NOT let them in.

How can I do this from the onclick event of the form?  Or if it can't be done this way, how?
