Revoke Privileges from a role

How do I go about revoking specific object privileges from a role from my Forms 5.0 application? Specifically, I have a small app that processes casual staff timecards. My users are assigned a role "tc_user" that has the select, insert, update, and delete privileges on the timecard table. At a certain time, I would like the database administrator to sign on as the schema owner and close the [Quoted] [Quoted] timecard table to updates or, essentially, be able to click on a button that would issue the command ...

"revoke insert, update, delete ON timecard from tc_user; commit;"

In theory, I hope this would allow tc_user to continue to select on the [Quoted] table untill the schema owner re assigns the other privileges. I'm trying to avoid having the clerk, who will be acting as the database administrator, go into SQL*Plus and issue the revoke command.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
