You say that the trace shows Secure CRT sending that character set, So I am guessing that it might be Secure CRT that has had some keyboard mapping enabled.

Does this problem occur if you log in to a different Unix user.

Does it happen if you logon to the same account from a different copy of Secure CRT, if so have a look at stty and the man page for termio to possibly resolve the problem.

        Subject:        Unix - ' @ ' symbol does not work in SQL Plus

Somebody has remapped the value that is expressed when the ' @ ' key is pressed.  A session trace file, from a Secure CRT emulation, shows that a hex 0d 0a, is being expressed instead.  As a result, we can't run SQL scripts from Sql Plus or svrmgrl.

This "feature" happens on an Oracle Unix account that a consultant was working with last week.  The production Unix accounts are all working OK.

I think I need to look at .login, .profile and several envnrionment scripts that are executed at login, but I don't know what I'm looking for.  I just need to get this key mapped back to "normal".

Any help and / or ideas?
