I always thought this was a good idea. I would love to have the chance to create a user and then provide some simple directory information about the user - like their name!!! We always end up using a NT id as the Oracle account name. Something as simple as the chance to provide a name would be great! To answer your question, no. Oracle does not provide this. You could create a database table of your own and store the info there. -------------------------------------------------------- This transmission may contain confidential, proprietary, or privileged information which is intended solely for use by the individual or entity to whom it is addressed.
