Have you tried doing the above more or less exactly as you describe?

You need to revoke FROM, rather than ON, and you don't need a commit, but [Quoted] otherwise it should work if placed in a 'when button pressed' trigger. If [Quoted] that fails, try using the FORMS_DDL built-in procedure.

I can't think why this should fail, but I may be missing something.
