We are currently developing a web appplication to reset passwords
for database users (v 9i). I have read information in the manuals that instead of using the ALTER command to do this, that is is better to use OCIPasswordChange() function. I just can't seem to find any other information about it.

There seems to be a problem with a current app that will not accept a password that begins with a numeric character....
The password is picked from a text box, and it's being passed
into the sql code as a string....but if you attempt to use anything beginning with a number, it produces an Int32 error.

probably in the coding, but I've tried everything I know to do, to no avail.

Any ideas on what the problem might be, and any suggestions on another way to accomplish this?

Sorry for not posting sooner....been really busy!

The following code is what we found works...it's written in vb.net, using ODP.NET:

the password is picked up from a text field:


Dim sqlReset As String = "alter user " & uname & " identified by " & """" & txtNewPass.Text & """"


This will allow passwords beginning with either integer or alpha.
