1)

http://youngcow.net/doc/oracle10g/server.102/b14200/statements_6010.htm

2) all depends on your Application logic.Hold on...Please let me know this first.
What do you mean by "client" here?your product clients?Or the users in your database?


SQL> conn sriram/sriram
Connected.
SQL> password
Changing password for SRIRAM
Old password:
New password:
Retype new password:

SQL> conn sriram/sriram

Actually my company is using ERP system but unfortunately the system doesn't provide a place for changing password. Thus the client is referring to application client.
Thanks

If you cannot afford a password change interface in your application then create a small program that uses the same Oracle interface than your ERP and allow to change the password.
The other solution is to install an Oracle client on user workstation to use SQL*Plus.

Do you have any sample of VB calling the oracle library to change password or do you know where the table oracle keeps the user ID & pwd?

1/ Does your client has an Oracle client installed in their workstation.
2/ I didn't check but I'm pretty sure if you search for "VB Oracle change password" on Google you will find some program, if not come back
3/ It is sys.user$ exposed in dba_users (for version <11g) but what is your purpose with that information?

You cannot update SYS objects or alter them in any way.
