But what if we want to give them *ALL on an object within that library,
would they be able to delete that work file?
yes - *USE on lib will allow delete of object in lib if user has delete
to object.

Thanks, I wasn't sure on this one.

Also, if we have *EXCLUDE on a library. Then we have a logical in another
library pointing to a file within the secured library. Would that work?
file in the locked library would have READ access only.
yes - (i've not tested this), note: data authorities on LF cannot be more
than on PF.
(this one i was not positive till checking Woodbury/Botz's Experts Guide
book p164)

I did just try this one and it works. I give the READ data authority only
on the PF in one library with *EXCLUDE on the library, then give them *USE
access on the logical on a seperate library. Now we can control what live
data they can access and what data within the file they can access.

I'll have to look into that book more.
