Razz I'm a newbie and I'm trying to change a password. I can connect to the db then at the SQL prompt I'm using:

alter user <name> identified by <new password>

The dos window comes back with '2' - then just sits there

I'm not sure what to do next

Can someone help? Thanks.

Just end the statement using ';' or '/'
