How prevent user from openein a form from a main menu if the form they are trying to open has a tag of "Secure"

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?

Note that in your "one record password table", ...you need to have a rock-solid way to prevent more that one record from ever being entered.

But this can get complicated depending on what you need, ...so this might be better dealt with in a separate, new question.

What's the point of using the Tag property of the control? If you want to ask the user to enter a password to open a form, use Jeff's suggestion, or do the same thing in the OnClick event of any button where a password is needed. Same concepts apply, but instead of running Jeff's code in the Open event of a Form, you run it in the Click event of the button.
