hi

create user roni123 identified by roni_23

when i run following sql statement

select * from dba_users
where username ='RONI123'

then we can see this user password is "E658D81823C2AD50"

but this format is encoded, so how i can decode this password (that means i retrieve password " roni_23")

You cannot, isn't it nice? Oracle is secure. Passwords are hashed and the hash value is stored, not the password itself. What is it you want with this password?
