here are some more informations.

We force our users to change their database password every 45 days =
according to our company rules.
We have implemented the password change mechanism in our own =
application. Our problem is that we have many users using ACCESS or =
EXCEL via ODBC to connect to the database. ACCESS and EXCEL do not habe =
a password change mechanism implemented. The user only get an ORA- error =
when connecting to the database.=20

Most of the user just execute pre-defined report or something else. They =
can't deal with SQL-Plus. So we are looking for a tool to give the user =
the ability to change their password. Ideally this is just an icon to =
click on where the user has to specify his ID, old password, new =
password und instance.

Best regards,
Michael Fleck=20

Hardie har har.  ;)

Michael, I think we'll need some more information about your users' =
environment to give recommendations.  For example, are they limited to =
only using a web browser?  Do they have sqlnet/sqlplus on their boxes?  =
Are you able to push files to their boxes?

For example, if the latter two are true, a quick solution is to push a =
simple .bat script that'll prompt for current username/password, new =
password, then do the alter user command for them.  Maybe not a good =
solution, but definitely cheap.
