Hi Ruben,

> What is the maximum password length in oracle 10g

The 10gR1 docs for the CREATE USER statement say:

Passwords must follow the rules described in the section "Schema Object Naming Rules ", unless you are using the Oracle Database password complexity verification routine.

And the Schema Object Naming Rules say:

Names must be from 1 to 30 bytes long

As always, it's best to verify this information in your databases by testing.

HTH! GL! Rich
