Guidelines for an acceptable Oracle user account password:

  • Passwords can not contain quotation marks.
  • Passwords are case sensitive.
  • A password must begin with an alphabetic character.
  • Passwords can contain alphanumeric characters and the underscore (_), dollar sign ($), and pound sign (#).
  • However, Oracle strongly discourages you from using $ and #.
  • Password may NOT contain the "@" character.
